LGBTQ History Timeline

Brown TBGALA is proud to present a special exhibit of the LGBTQ History Timeline. This traveling exhibit offers a peek into the growing LGBTQ History Archive. A project of Brown University’s LGBTQ Center, the archive is a collection of documents, photos, and other memorabilia that showcases the history of LGBTQ presence and activism at Brown. Begin the evening by exploring the exhibit during the opening reception.

The recent release of Brown’s new Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan offers an opportunity to reflect on the challenges and successes related to diversity and equity on campus. Kelly Garrett, Program Director of the LGBTQ Center, will host a special conversation focused on the various ways the University is working to cultivate a culture that facilitates and promotes social justice and inclusion at Brown. We'll look back at the history of student activism and social-justice work at Brown, particularly over the past 40 years, and look ahead to ongoing work and pressing issues on campus.
