The QAP sponsors LGBTQ+ related events and programs designed to connect to current students, alumni and the community.

Our most recent event was a brunch and QAP alumni participant panel which occurred during Homecoming weekend. We proudly partnered with the Pride Network, the Lafayette College LGBTQ+ affinity group on this event.

Out Loud: Tales from the queer Archives LBGTQ Oral History project

Committed to expanding knowledge of LGBTQ+ life at the College and promoting an inclusive campus climate, Lafayette’s Queer Archives Project has now completed 20 oral history interviews of LGBTQ alums and staff. This session featured a short presentation on the state of project by the QAP Team, followed by a panel featuring Lafayette alums who have participated in the project by giving oral history interviews. Our moderated discussion explored Lafayette’s LGBTQ past and considered the changed (and changing!) climate for Queer people on campus.

All members of the Lafayette community interested in learning more about efforts to raise the visibility of LGBTQ+ issues on campus and building a more inclusive community at Lafayette were welcomed at the event!

Moderator: Mary A. Armstrong, Charles A. Dana Professor of Women’s & Gender Studies and English

Alumni panelists: Harlan Levinson ’83, Stacey-Ann Pearson ’15, Riley K. Temple ’71, Leah Wasacz ’16
