Camaraderie. Cabaret. Comadres. Colleagues. Coteries. Conversation. Collaboration. Collectivity. These are some of the keywords that guided the development of our symposium. To celebrate the launch of the LGBTQ Studies Program at UT, we invited our faculty affiliates to partner with someone of their choosing to organize a panel or an event. The resulting program was an eclectic mix – part gay cabaret, part lesbian potluck – but one that thus represents some of the many things we do and the wide-ranging affiliations, friendships, and networks that we share across and beyond UT. This program signaled some of the future directions for an LGBTQ Studies Program grounded in our collegial and collaborative associations, which are one of our sources of power in the face of oppressive institutions.

Welcome to LGBTQ Studies at UT!

After many years of planning, the new LGBTQ Studies Program has been launched this 2017-18 academic year. The LGBTQ Studies Program operates under the auspices of the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies and builds from the foundation established by the LGBTQ/Sexualities Research Cluster founded in 2004.

With the increased visibility of the Program, we hope to support LGBTQ life on campus, working in conjunction with organizations such as the Gender Sexuality Center, PEFSA (Pride and Equity Faculty Staff Association), the President’s Advisory Committee on LGBTQ Initiatives, and student LGBTQ groups. Our aim will be to facilitate the vision for a gender-inclusive and LGBTQ-friendly campus laid out by the GSC. [read more about the LGBTQ Studies Program]
