Each day in October, an Icon is featured with a video, biography, bibliography, downloadable images and other educational resources. LGBT History Month provides role models, teaches history, builds community, and makes the important civil rights statement of the LGBT community’s important contributions. As the only community worldwide that is not taught its history at home, in public schools or religious institutions, this free online project undermines internal homophobia and builds self-esteem.
The University of Delaware’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Faculty/Staff Caucus is committed to fostering and sustaining a welcoming and affirming climate on campus for all employees, their families, students and visitors. We serve as a resource for LGBT employees, advocate for a safe and inclusive environment and contribute to a culturally rich campus by community-building with other UD organizations, programs and students.
After prior attempts at organization in past years, the current Caucus organized in March 2010. All UD faculty, staff and graduate assistants who self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, intersexed or questioning are invited to be members — we also welcome the membership and active involvement of allies in the UD community. Benefits of membership include access to the online LGBT Caucus SAKAI site which keeps you posted on the latest events and activities of the caucus and participation in UD’s LGBT community. The Caucus is governed by the membership-at-large and has a volunteer Board of Directors. Caucus meetings are held as needed.
