Baruch College celebrates Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History Month 2014 #lgbthm2014

OCTOBER 9 - 30, 2014

This year’s LGBT History Month theme is “Community”. The month’s events aim to illustrate how far the LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Allied) community has come in areas of cultural integration, education, politics, the workplace, and the role of marriage equality in recent years. This is a great time to reflect on the progress of LGBTQIA community rights and to discuss changes still to come. We invite the entire Baruch community to join us in celebration.

Events are subject to change. Please check back often.
