Closeted/Out in the Quadrangles: A History of LGBTQ Life at the University of Chicago

From relationships between early female professors to the beginnings of gay liberation on campus, this exhibition examines the range of experiences lived by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students and faculty at the University. Drawing on holdings from the University archives, including those of University and Social Sciences pioneers, the exhibition displays letters, academic papers, and student newspaper articles, as well as posters, photographs, and other visual documentation. Closeted/Out runs at the Special Collections Research Center Exhibition Gallery through June 15.
