Welcome to the HGSC!
Organizing, Serving, and Advocating for the Harvard Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community.
Welcome to our home on the Web. If you are a member of the HGSC, and are here for the first time, please sign in and review your account information. We have transferred the information from our previous site, and would like to make sure it is up to date. Members who are Harvard Alumni, Associates or Students can use the Harvard Alumni link (post.harvard). You can create your post.harvard account if you don't have one. Members who are Harvard Faculty, Harvard staff, or alumni/students who don't want to use the HAA system can use the non-alumni link. Click here for more info.
The HGSC celebrates the recent Supreme Court deciision that made marriage equality the law of the land. Our community has been working towards this goal for years. in 2003 Evan Wolfson, JD'83, spoke at our annual dinner, and proposed the plan to pursue marriage equality as the fastest way toward full equality. The Caucus and our members will continue the effort until that goal of full equality is achieved.
The Harvard Gender & Sexuality Caucus has been working for the bisexual, gay, lesbian, trans and queer members of the Harvard University community since 1984, and 2015 brought us this new home on the web. We hope it carries over all that was good from the previous, and that it will bring exciting new functionality for the future.
The HGSC (formerly the HGLC) is dedicated to fostering a robust community that links the BGLTQ alumni, faculty, staff and students together from Harvard Yard to where ever our members have gone. We have and will continue to advocate for our issues to the university administration when needed, and work alongside them on common efforts to improve GBLTQ life at Harvard. We will work to be present on campus, supporting our current students in their academic work through our collaborations with the Committee on Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and in creating networking and social events for students, faculty, staff and alumni. We plan to support our local chapters in their efforts to create similar opportunities in the cities they are located. Through our newsletters, Facebook pages, Twitter feed and Linkedin sites we hope to extend our community using these other platforms, allowing our diverse and vibrant membership meet and interact in new and exciting ways. Come back here, and come back often, as we hope to be continuously improving HGSC.org!
