12:00pm to 1:00pm

Location:

We stand on the shoulders of giants -- many staff and faculty who worked tirelessly (on top of their other jobs) to make Harvard a leader in LGBTQ policies and programs. Since 2003, we have been meeting informally -- finding each other here or there and building a community. We will use this space in the future to detail this history and the incredible efforts of others. In the meantime, join us as we forge a new group together.
