Gay & Lesbian Studies

Notice about funding for Gay & Lesbian Studies classes, 1998

North Carolina Collection

Letter announcing a committee and funds for Gay and Lesbian Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill, February 1998

This letter from Classics Professor Cecil Wooten announces the establishment of a committee and funds for Gay and Lesbian Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill. Wooten was central to the LGBTQ community at UNC and in Chapel Hill. These funds were used to establish grants, teach courses, invite speakers, and host conferences at the committee’s discretion. In chairing this committee, Wooten helped to develop courses across the spectrum of the university, from English and Classics to Science and Communications, resulting eventually in the Sexuality Studies program.
