LGBT Student Movement

LGBT Student Movement

The origin of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender student movement can be linked to other progressive and activist movements from the mid-20th century. The civil rights movement, women's rights movement all have the similarity of Identity politics linking them to modern LGBT movements. The goals of the LGBT Student Movement have varied by time and location, but range from the abolition of sodomy laws, to increasing funding for AIDS research, to legalizing gay marriage, to preventing the bullying and suicide of LGBT kids. These student movements have not always been successful, but LGBT activism in general has succeeded in bringing visibility to their community as well as legislative action benefiting the LGBT community.
