Gay Academic Union: “The Gay Academic Union (GAU) was a group of LGBT academics who aimed at making the academia more amenable to the LGBT community. It was formed in April 1973, just four years after the Stonewall riots, held 4 yearly conferences (the last in November, 1976) and conducted other scholarly activities, it disbanded sometime after that.” (https://wikivisually.com/wiki/Gay_Academic_Union)
