LGBTQ Policy and Advocacy in Spain

Academics

This CSU faculty-led summer program examines advocacy and policies, which affect LGBTQ communities in Spain. By traveling to Barcelona and engaging in international activities, lecture, and events, students will have the opportunity to explore how one country's journey toward equality can inform other countries. A specific look at how social identities weave into the complexities of policy will be examined (e.g. race, socioeconomic status, etc.). Related site visits to enhance academic content include visiting Casal Lmadba, an association that brings together the local LGBTQ community to provide social and health services, the Axel Hotel Barcelona, a day trip to Sitges, Spain's most gay-friendly town, ACEGAL, a major Catalan association of firms and businesses for the LGBTQ Community, and more. Students will enroll in WS 382A: LGBTQ Advocacy and Policy {3 credits}.
