LGBTQ+ History Month Lecture: “Students, Sodomy, and the State: LGBT Campus Struggles in the 1970s” by Dr. Marc Stein Online

In this presentation, gay historian Marc Stein discusses fourteen court cases from the 1970s in which students filed suit against public colleges and universities that denied official recognition to newly-established LGBT student groups.
