Sexuality Studies 2016

The Sexuality Studies program at York is a really welcoming and unique corner of the university. Unlike many larger programs, I really felt like the faculty and staff got to know me, and were invested in my success. It was through their support and mentorship that I was able to successfully apply to a graduate program in Gender, Feminist & Women's Studies. The students are some of the most interesting and kindest folks I've ever known, and continue to be some of my closest friends, supporters and collaborators.

The interdisciplinary nature of the program gave me the freedom and creativity to design my learning in a way that catered to my own interests and path. The core courses in the program were engaging and challenging in the best way. Some of the most valuable things I took away from the program were the abilities to better read and engage with complex critical theory, as well as to build and hone my own critical analysis.

As a person who is part of the LGBTQ+ community, I really value the way that concepts such as intersectionality, heteronormativity, trans-misogyny, ableism and white supremacy, among others, were taken up in class. I find that these topics only become more and more relevant and needed in the current moment in social justice activism and the global issue of authoritarian and fascist politics.
