Pride Month 2023

Happy Pride Month! June is a time for celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) pride. In CLA, we seek to create safe, supportive environments that foster pride, growth, and joy. We are honored to shine a light on the following stories about LGBTQ+ experiences and research.

Department of Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies

The gender, women & sexuality studies department promotes feminist scholarship, teaching, and programming that centers on the relationship between knowledge, power, and social justice. We push against established boundaries while providing a rich and rigorous education that asks students to view the world around them with a curious yet critical lens. The department offers an undergraduate major and minor in GWSS, an undergraduate minor in GLBT studies, a doctoral degree in feminist studies, and a graduate minor in feminist and critical sexuality studies.
