Attending the North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festival? Please make plans to attend this inaugural reception hosted by the Duke Heritage Society and the Office of Gift Planning!
Gather with friends and learn about a few of the ways that Duke is active with and supportive of its LGBTQ student and alumni community:
- Bernadette Brown, the new director of Duke’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, will be introduced.
- Laura Micham, Merle Hoffman Director of the Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture and the Curator of Gender and Sexuality History Collections for the Rubenstein Library, will provide a brief look at the Rubenstein’s notable LGBTQ history and culture collections. Many of these collections were used in the Libraries’ recent exhibit, “Queering Duke History.”
- Kristen Brown Smalley of the Office of Gift Planning will share more about Duke’s activities in the LGBTQ community and our growing affinity network across the country.
