Queers and queer practices have played a significant role in challenging racism, colonialism, patriarchy and a broader range of exploitive societal institutions. In this course, we will introduce a set of foundational concepts from queer theory in parallel with corresponding concepts in crip theory and complexity theory and apply them to critically analyzing resistance movements that have centered on issues impacting queers, involving queer folx or using queer approaches. Case studies highlight intersectional resistance and queer resistance strategies developed and practiced by Anti-racist, Trans and Queer Activists and Scholars.
