The Dodd Research Center received the “Outstanding Ally Office/Department Award” by the University of Connecticut’s Rainbow Center last night at the Lavendar Graduation Ceremony. The award recognized our public outreach efforts to educate the community on LGBTQ issues. One of those recent efforts noted included the exhibit “From the Margins to the Mainstream: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer History, 1968-2008,” a historical and contemporary look at materials published by the LGBTQ community. Included in the program was a screening of the film “After Stonewall”. The award also recognized the continued effort by the curators to actively collect documents of value to the research of LGBTQ issues.
