Queer Archives Project display serves as “celebration of courage”

The Queer Archives Project, a collaboration between the Library and Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies (WGSS), was recently featured in The Lafayette. Contributing writer Lisa Green profiles the QAP’s exhibit currently on display in Skillman Library through June.

It is students who have dared, it is students who have demanded, it is students who have done the work to force the college to move forward on these issues. And in many ways, students have been the leaders, and the college has been the followers…. It is a critical project, and it looks at an institution that has been too slow to care, too slow to act, too slow to really step up for a marginalized group.”
