Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies (LGBTS) at Yale promotes innovative interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching on the historical and contemporary experience of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender people. It also fosters critical analysis of queer and normative sexualities, the formation of sexual and gender minorities, and the role of sexuality in culture and politics across the world. It has a national and international reputation for its faculty, lecturers, fellowships, prizes, and symposia.

As an interdisciplinary committee, LGBTS organizes and co-sponsors scholarly lectures, conferences, film screenings, and other events; provides research grants to faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates; co-sponsors the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Graduate Colloquium; and works closely with Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) to coordinate LGBTS course offerings. From 2001-2006, a generous gift from a donor allowed LGBTS to establish and oversee the Larry Kramer Initiative, which hosted a wide array of public programs on LGBT issues and strengthened LGBTS at Yale. Today LGBTS has a 15-member faculty committee, a faculty chair, and two full-time senior administrative assistants.
