Portion of a door on display during Coming Out Week


The Queer Activism at Colgate (QAC) digital history project includes the QAC digital timeline and oral history recordings with alumni, faculty, and staff. This material was collected and curated by students completing LGBT 220, Explorations in LGBTQ Studies, in Fall 2018, 2019, and 2020, with Research Assistants Mackenzie Harrison '22 and Jacob Licker '21, contributing additional materials. All of these students worked under the supervision of K G Valente, Professor of Mathematics and LGBTQ Studies, and were assisted by Sarah Keen, University Archivist and Head of Special Collections and University Archives.
