The controversy over same-sex lifestyles is now going from legislatives floors to college classrooms.

In 2013, Morehouse College will offer students the opportunity to enroll in a course on the history of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

Just a year ago, the historically black college found themselves under scrutiny for banning cross-dressing on campus. Several students felt the policy was directed towards LGBT students.

According to the school’s newspaper, “The Maroon Tiger,” the course will explore the interrelation between the black experience and being LGBT.

The class will also focus on key concepts such as Black feminism, methodology and critical cultural theory. The course syllabus identifies the study as “an interdisciplinary survey of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) culture and politics.”

Administrators are hoping the new class will encourage Morehouse students to adopt a more tolerant and inclusive attitude as well as influence other HBCU’s to do the same.

    What a shame. Another HBCU bowing down to the anti-christ culture. I would rather my daughter marry a white man than to get in a relationship with another woman. It is sick. All the homosexuals are mental ill and need treatment.
