Immigration and the LGBTQI Community



This course will examine the intersection between immigration and the LGBTQI community. The course will examine the issues representing LGBTQI asylum seekers who face a fear of persecution in their native countries because of their sexual orientation or identity. This course will also examine the struggle of LGBTQI undocumented youth and the challenges they face as a result of the "double closet" in this country. The course will be taught primarily as a lecture-style course but will integrate some practical exercises.
