Biographical / Historical

In 1969, students founded the first gay organization at Yale, now called the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Cooperative at Yale (LGBT Co-op). The LGBT Co-op is an "action organization whose purpose is to foster and encourage an environment at Yale in which all queer and LGBT identified people can express themselves academically, artistically, socially, and politically." The Co-op sponsors social and educational events and activities, including Pride Week every spring.
