Our core values recognize the interdisciplinary nature of the intersection of sexuality, gender- identity, gender, race, class, ability, and age in understanding the LGBT community. Therefore, we believe interdisciplinary approaches to education are critical. Our courses are accesible to all.
History on the first Queer Studies Department in the U.S, which began with a gay literature class in 1978.
Find an out LGBT CCSF Administrator, Professor, Librarian, or other CCSF employee. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals are different than many other minority groups in that their minority status can be invisible, you may not know someone's orientation by looking at them. One of the reasons that discrimination exists is because of this invisibility. The City College Outlist was created to help people become more aware that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals are part of our everyday lives. We may be your physician, your newspaper delivery person, the cashier at your local grocery store - or, in this case, your teacher, administrator, or colleague. It is hoped that as people become more aware that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals are real people that we all know, we can move beyond stereotypes and discrimination. The City College Outlist will be part of ongoing community education. Individuals who would like to add their name to the outlist should contact Linda Bacon at email@example.com or 239-3189.
