UT recognizes LGBTQA History Month

The University of Toledo is celebrating LGBTQA History Month with several events this October.

The Office of Multicultural Student Success, LGBTQA+ Initiatives and Spectrum UT are dedicated to serving the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and allied students.

“Celebrating honors the historic leaders of the LGBTQA+ community; celebrating offers an opportunity to highlight LGBTQA+ history and culture; celebrating creates awareness of the LGBTQA+ community for all people; and celebrating reminds us all that LGBTQA+ history is part of larger history,” said Danielle Stamper, graduate assistant in the Office of Multicultural Student Success.

“As an LGBTQA+ student at UT, the fact that The University of Toledo is celebrating LGBTQA History Month demonstrates that UT is continually striving to be an ally that welcomes, respects and celebrates its LGBTQA+ students.”
