Become an Ally for the LGBTQ Community. Participate in campus training sessions and become part of the Duke Ally Network.

When Joshua Lazard started working within Duke Chapel less than a year ago, he noticed a rainbow placard hanging outside his supervisor’s office.

The card reads, “I am your ALLY,” and is given to Duke employees and students who go through ally training offered by Duke’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity.

Lazard, the C. Eric Lincoln Minister for Student Engagement, went through the training last year to learn how to offer more support to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community. He is now working on a partnership between his office and the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, in which he’ll help encourage an open environment for students exploring both their spiritual and sexual identities.

Bernadette Brown has been named the new director of the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity (CSGD) at Duke.

“She brings strong management skills, expertise in LGBTQ issues, theories and perspectives,” said Zoila Airall, who oversees CSGD as VP of Campus Life for Student Affairs at Duke. “Her colleagues describe her as someone they will miss because of her encyclopedic mind, engaging sense of humor and commitment to social justice issues.”

Throughout the Fall semester, “Queering Duke History” has commemorated a turbulent 50 years of LGBT life and progress on campus. Brown’s arrival on Jan. 5 will be an integral part of the next chapter of this story.
