LGBTQ Series

Lectures curated around the gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, and transgender communities.

Includes lectures that examine the political, social, and religious issues surrounding the controversial Supreme Court decision, whereby, on May 17, 2004, marriage between same-sex couples became legal in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

In June of 2000, Bill Clinton deemed the month of June, "Gay and Lesbian Pride Month." The month was chosen to remember a riot in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in Manhattan that is thought to be the beginning of the gay liberation movement in the United States. This month is meant to recognize the impact Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer-identified individuals have had on the world. June is now the month of acceptance and the month to welcome diversity in communities regardless of sexual orientation. Gay and lesbian groups celebrate this special time with pride parades, picnics, parties, memorials for those lost from HIV and AIDS, and other group gathering events.
