Please join us on Thursday, May 25, 2017, for the HGSC Annual Commencement Dinner.  We'll be hosted again in Lowell House by Faculty Deans Diana L. Eck and Dorothy A. Austin.


Since 1982 the Annual Dinner has served as an important celebration of the BGLTQ+ community at Harvard. The original HGSC Annual Dinner took place at a local area hotel. The following year it was held at the Harvard Faculty Club, and it remained there until 2004 when it was moved to its current location at Lowell House. The dinner is held each year on the day of Commencement, providing an opportunity for cross-generational celebration between new graduates, returning alumni and alumnae and Harvard faculty and staff. 


We also take the occasion of the Annual Dinner to recognize and honor individuals who have made important contributions to the BGLTQ+ community.  Past speakers and previous award recipients may be viewed on our website.  This year we are thrilled to welcome Representative Mark Takano, AB '83 (Congressman for the 41st District of California), and Ambassador Joanne Adamson OBE, MPA '14 (Deputy Head of the European Union Delegation to the United Nations) as our guest speakers.  The discussion panel will be moderated by Sheehan Scarborough, AB '07, MDV '14 (Director of the Office of BGLTQ Student Life).
