This course will examine several important issues faced by 2SLGBTQ+ people in Canada, both historically and today, following some primers on gender, sexuality and the “ABCs.” Through a combination of lectures and facilitated discussions, the course will challenge popular notions that many of the issues faced by 2SLGBTQ+ people have been already “solved” through the legalization of gay sex in 1969 and same-sex marriage in 2005. Further, we will look at the diversity within this complex “community” and explore the tensions within it. Students will learn how 2SLGBTQ+ people, and their allies, actively address issues such as blood bans, trans people’s access to services, policing, and the politics of pride.



J.D. Crookshanks has a PhD in political science from the University of Alberta, specializing in Canadian, gender, and Indigenous politics. For three years, he co-hosted Gaywire on CJSR, Edmonton’s only radio program dedicated to shedding light on and discussing queer and trans news, events, and issues. He has also taught a variety of courses in politics at two universities.
