History / Biographical
The Committee on Homophobia at the University of Toronto had its beginnings in November, 1989 when political science professor David Rayside established a committee on homophobia. The committee, with Dr. Rayside as its first coordinator, brought together students, staff and faculty of all sexual orientations. Its aims were to combat discrimination and heterosexism, to encourage the inclusion of lesbian, gay and bisexuals in all aspects of university life, to foster cultural diversity, and to promote academic research and teaching in gay, lesbian and bisexual studies. The Committee organized the annual Lesbian and Gay Awareness Week (the name was later changed to the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Awareness Week), conducted surveys of college residences and produced information brochures and pamphlets. They worked to challenge university policies on issues of spousal benefits, and hazing and initiation rituals on campus. In 1991, they were successful in having the University extend spousal benefits to same-sex couples. The committee disbanded in 1995.
Scope and Content
The fonds contains records that document the administration and activities of the Committee on Homophobia from its founding in 1989 to its disbanding in 1994. It includes records pertaining to its advocacy and outreach, its political activities and its educational efforts. The fonds is composed of the committee’s Constitution, correspondence, minutes, fliers, surveys, brochures, posters, and other material documenting the activities of the committee and other organizations.
