It was recently revealed that the University of Louisiana at Lafayette began offering a Minor in Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender Studies during the spring semester. The new course of study was outed by Gene Mills, president of the Louisiana Family Forum via an e-mail to supporters.
One of the purposes of the LGBT Minor, according to the ULL website (as of July 24), is as follows: “Through their studies, students will be challenged to investigate cultural traditions that have shaped our current understanding of sexuality and gender, permitting them to confront these traditions and generate new theoretical and ideological paradigms.”
According to the ULL website the new course of study is “Louisiana’s first opportunity to obtain a minor in LGBT Studies.”
