The Donald F. Baker Fund - LGBT Studies Program
The Undergraduate Minor in LGBT studies at UNT was founded in memory of the educational work of Donald Floyd Baker (1947-2000). Mr. Baker’s family created this endowment to honor his many contributions as a community activist and lifetime educator.
Two years after publicly identifying himself as a gay teacher in Dallas ISD, he was a plaintiff in Baker v. Wade, a lawsuit challenging Texas Penal Code 21.06 that criminalized homosexual contact between consenting adults in private. Adocumentary featuring his crusade won a Katie Award from the Press Club in Dallas in 2000.
The family and friends of Don Baker invite you to be a part of remembering the man and his mission: Education…the tool to understanding. All contributions to the Don Baker Fund are tax deductible.
