University of California course work: LGBTQ views of pop music

University of California students needing a quick music course to fill out their credit requirements for graduation have an option this summer: Take the “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Perspectives in Pop Music” class.

Campus Reform reports that class is a weekly “survey of English-language popular music in the 20th century, with focus on lesbians, gay men and members of other sexual minorities as creators, performers and audience members.” The cost of the course: It’s $1,395 for U.C. students and $2,085 for non-U.C. students, and at least 55 have already signed up, Campus Reform reports.

It’s part of the UCLA’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Studies Department, which has already offered classes like, “Chicana Lesbian Literature,” and “Psychology of the Lesbian Experience,” Campus Reform reports.

The LGBT agenda isn’t confined to California schools.

The University of Tennessee is going to spend $20,000 from a student fund on a “sex week” that will include a “Golden Condom Scavenger Hunt” as well as an “interactive workshop … [from] lesbian Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism expert” Sinclair Sexsmith, Campus Reform reports.

The sex week starts on April 7.
