    “Lesbians, Gay Men, Bisexual, and Transgender Individuals in American Law and History” is a newer course at Rutgers-Camden that examines the history of discriminiatory practices toward the LGBT community, going as far back as the 17th century.

    Rutgers-Camden Distinguished Professor N.E.H. Hull created the course, which marks the changes in the law beginning with old sodomy laws and continuing to the present day.
