The College of Charleston Fall 2013 Convocation of  Urban Studies majors featured Dr. Michael Frisch, AICP, from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.  Dr. Frisch presented his work on how urban planning, as a discipline and practice, promotes certain norms and ideals about gendered identity.  He challenged ideas of heteronormativity, and he suggested that suburban environments limit the extent to which gay identities can be expressed.
