Center for LGBTQ Studies (CLAGS)

A fundraising campaign for Graduate Center, CUNY



The Center for LGBTQ Studies (CLAGS), located at The Graduate Center, CUNY, was founded in 1991 and is the first university-based research center in the United States dedicated to the study of historical, cultural, and political issues of vital concern to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals and communities. Your support of CLAGS is critical to establishing a legacy.

CLAGS nurtures cutting-edge scholarship, organizes events for examining and affirming LGBTQ lives, and fosters network-building among academics, artists, activists, policy makers, and community members. The CLAGS staff along with our Board of Directors stand committed to maintaining a broad program of public events, online projects, and fellowships that promote reflection on queer pasts, presents, and futures. Although we are housed at The Graduate Center, we are a self-sustaining center where fundraising and philanthropic programs are done in-house. All CLAGS’s initiatives are administered through the efforts of our staff.

Your gift affords our community and scholars the opportunity of a one-of-a kind experience that celebrates scholarship, art, and activism from the voices of the LGBTQ community. With your help, CLAGS can continue to expose the community to current issues and ideas in an environment that encourages growth and participation.

Whether your gift is $100 or $100,000, it has a significant impact on the lives of students and our community — now and in the future — that far exceeds the actual dollar amount.

Thank you for your support.
