Gay, lesbian caucus awards first Public Service Fellowship

2 min read

The Harvard Gay and Lesbian Caucus (HGLC) has awarded its first-ever Public Service Fellowship to Anna Baldwin ’00.

The HGLC Public Service Fellowship is a one-time grant of $3,000 made to a full-time student of any school of Harvard University to educate, organize, or otherwise benefit the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community during the summer of 2000. Work can be independent or within an existing nonprofit organization. The fellowship was made possible by The Open Gate, a Fund for Gay and Lesbian Life at Harvard University.

Baldwin will be working at Equality Florida, a statewide organization that works to achieve social, political, and economic justice by ending oppression based on sexual orientation, race, class, and gender.

“Equality Florida is explicitly interested in racial and economic equality in addition to sexual orientation,” said Baldwin, “The organization is not narrow or single-minded in its conception of justice.”

HGLC is composed of over 2,300 lesbian, bisexual, gay, and transgendered alumni/ae, faculty, and staff of Harvard University. Its mission is to develop, nurture, and defend Harvard’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. Membership is $25 per year and includes the Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review as well as online resources. Harvard affiliates may join at For more information, contact, or (617) 441-9498 or HGLC, P.O.
