(Nov. 4, Marple Campus) A workshop on the history of LGBTQ+ visibility in popular culture will be held on Nov. 15 at 11:10 a.m. at the Marple Campus. The program takes place in Room 2185 in the Academic Building. Students can also attend via Zoom.
Associate Professor Maria Boyd will present a historical overview of LGBTQ+ members in media. Boyd will discuss popular movies, shows, music, and video games.
The event will be followed by a Q&A where students can engage with one another.
This workshop is part of DCCC’s mission to expand services for LGBTQ+ community members. Professor Boyd said, “Unfortunately, LGBTQ+ history does not occupy much space in textbooks.”
The hope is to bring awareness to a culture that has largely been hidden. Professor Boyd said, “Many LGBTQ+ folks and allies at DCCC may not realize how rich LGBTQ+ history is.”
Overall, the Professor is excited to share her passion. “It’s so fun to be able to discuss this topic with staff and students!”
