LGBTQ History at Georgetown

This guide will introduce patrons to the material held in the University Archives that documents the history of the LGBTQ community at Georgetown.

History of the LGBTQ Community at Georgetown

An extensive history of Georgetown's LGBTQ community can be found via the LGBTQ Histories at Georgetown blog created by LGBTQ Resource Center's founding Director Sivagami "Shiva" Subbaraman. The blog covers early efforts by students on campus to form an official student group in the late 1970s up to the founding of the LGBTQ Resource Center in 2008.
