George Chauncey, a professor at Yale University, author and one of the nation’s foremost experts on American LGBT history, will headline Rice University’s Campbell Lecture Series April 3-5.

This year’s program, titled “From the McCarthy Era to Marriage Equality: LGBT Culture and Politics Since the 1950s,” will feature three lectures:
“The Politics of Anti-Gay Discrimination in the McCarthy Era and Beyond” (April 3)
“From Drag Balls to Vogue Balls: Black Gay Culture and Politics Before and After Stonewall” (April 4)
“AIDS, the Lesbian Baby Boom and the Campaign for Marriage Equality” (April 5).

The lectures are free and open to the public and will begin at 6 each night in the university’s Moody Center for the Arts, located on the west side of Rice’s campus at Entrance 8 at Stockton and University Boulevard. Registration is required. Each lecture will be approximately 45 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A with the audience. A reception will be held after the April 3 lecture.
