Wilde-Stein Marks Four Decades of Advocating for LGBT Rights

Three founders of Wilde-Stein Alliance for Sexual Diversity will take part in a panel discussion Oct. 18 to celebrate the organization’s advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights for 40 years at the University of Maine.

The panel discussion will be part of a 4:30-7 p.m. celebratory event at Wells Conference Center that includes hors d’oeuvres and beverages. In October 1973, Wilde-Stein received provisional status as a gay and lesbian student group at UMaine.

Named in honor of Oscar Wilde and Gertrude Stein, Wilde-Stein embraces the spectrum of sexualities and genders, offers students the opportunity to socialize in a safe, accepting place and seeks to support and inform the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.
