The International LGBT Rights Movement - A History

The International LGBT Rights Movement - A History - New Approaches to International History
A lecture by Dr. Belmonte

The global landscape of international lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights is fraught with geopolitical complexities and stark contrasts. Using selected historical figures, organizations, and events to illuminate critical junctures in the global LGBT movement, this lecture asks the audience to contemplate whether “victory” for global LGBT equality is possible, what such success might look like, and what actions the global community could take to facilitate that aim.

Dr. Belmonte is Dean of the Virginia Tech College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences and Professor of History. She is also a former OSU Center for the Humanities Fellow.
