About the Program

The University of Pittsburgh Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Program is committed to promoting feminist and LGBTQIA activism, pedagogy, and scholarship that engage with the larger local, national, and global communities. Program offerings provide opportunities for students and faculty to explore the historical development, cultural variations, and changing representations of gender and sexuality as they organize identities, interactions, and institutions and intersect in complex ways with sex, race, class, ethnicity, ability, age, religion, and nation.

Orlando Tragedy

Dear Friends: On behalf of GSWS, I send our condolences to all those who lost someone in Orlando this weekend. For those of us who are spending our lives teaching and researching in LGBTQ studies and in diversity studies more broadly, we will do what we can to contribute to creating another kind of world than the one we have read about this weekend: we will teach and do our research a little bit harder. We will continue to create safe spaces where students can read about, write about, and discuss gender and sexuality.
