Boston College panel spreads awareness of LGBT issues – Amanda Kozar

Paul Breines, who worked for years as a professor in Boston College’s history department, said he was “moved to tears” by the turnout of BC’s panel discussion concerning lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender issues Monday night.

The discussion, in honor of Breine’s LGBT activism on campus, featured a panel of five BC faculty members, including Breines, who spoke of their experiences attempting to spread campus awareness of LBGT issues, as well as their struggles to incorporate awareness and knowledge of these issues into the classroom.
