Clark Pomerleau Ph.D.
"When I decided to join UNT, one draw was that I noticed LGBT Studies (then called Studies of Sexuality) existed housed in History. The visibility of the program was a good portent regarding students and forward-thinking colleagues. Bringing my specialization and course in History of Sexualities, I immediately affiliated and cross-listed courses. The students have proven to be engaged in social justice and human services. Many want to help individuals through teaching, counseling, or NGO and policy work to better society. Since 2007, the minor has changed name, changed home department, and grown. I am proud to remain part of LGBT Studies, working with students to consider how sexuality provides a analytical lens for better understanding U.S. society."
