Hundreds of participants on Sunday took part in a parade demanding freedom and safety of their community, according to a media release.

The University of Massachusetts-Boston is teaching a course in political theory with the expressed aim of denaturalizing heterosexuality, among its other stated goals. The class fulfills a mandatory diversity requirement at the school.

The College Fix reported Wednesday that the advanced political science course, "Queer Political Theory," according to an online descirption in the 2017-18 undergraduate catalog, says that its "primary aims are the de-naturalization of (hetero)sexuality and (hetero)normative gender categories, identities, and expression."

The course is taught by Professor C. Heike Schotten, who has authored several related publications, among them Queer Terror: Life, Death, and Desire in the Settler Colony; To Exist is to Resist: Palestine and the Question of Queer Theory; Men, Masculinity, and Male Domination: Rethinking Feminist Analyses of Sex Work; Homonationalism: From Critique to Diagnosis, or, We Are All Homonational Now; and Nietzsche and Emancipatory Politics: Queer Theory as Anti-Morality.

"Queer Political Theory" is reportedly one of ten courses offered at the college that are with a focus on queer theory.

Author and scholar Nancy Pearcey, whom The Christian Post interviewed earlier this year about her book Love Thy Body, First, noted in a Wednesday email to The Christian Post that for a class to aim to "denaturalize" heterosexuality it means it claims no natural basis exists for heterosexuality.
