UW-Madison faculty, staff, and students lead scholarly and community projects around LGBT issues.
Trans Studies Colloquium
The Trans Studies Colloquium is a project organized by graduate students. The colloquium offers a venue for any student, staff, or faculty member to workshop large projects that might draw from or contribute to Transgender Studies as a field. Term papers, articles, Masters' theses, conference presentations, and dissertation chapters are all appropriate projects.
Each meeting of the Trans Studies Colloquium focuses on one presenter's work. All participants are given copies of the project to read in advance.

LGBTQ Civil Rights Movement: 1960-Now
This course offered in 2008 explored the political, social, and cultural history of the mid-twentieth century U.S. LGBTQ movement. This historical exploration provided a basis for consideration of issues and themes that extend to contemporary LGBTQ life in the U.S. and beyond.
Students traveled to Detroit, Washington D.C., and New York City on a ten-day exploration of historical sites. There, they met with living leaders of the LGBTQ Civil Rights Movement, visited organizations and conducted interviews.
