“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.
This semester, Hull says there are only four students because the class was offered late. It’s not clear if the course will be offered again.
