The library has put together a timeline that collects the intriguing history that has cultivated the culture we see today. The incidents showcased on this timeline demonstrate the impact that LGBTQ+ Champlainers have made on the College for decades and the influence of Burlington and Vermont LGBTQ+ culture and history on our Champlain community. Through advocacy and empathy, the Champlain community has worked towards an evolution in its ideas of inclusion regarding sexual orientation and gender identity.
