The Story of Us

As CPAN members, we are deeply committed to amplifying the voices of LGBTQIA+ experiences. We now have a unique opportunity to tell our story and document our legacy at Carolina. CPAN is leading “The Story of Us,” a ground-breaking collaboration with Wilson Library, the Southern Oral History Program, and the Department of Communication committed to preserving —and sharing — our voices. The project will include a permanent collection in Wilson Library, giving a broader and richer understanding of our history, not only to the LGBTQIA+ community but to the Carolina community as a whole. Watch the video to hear more about the Story of Us from CPAN board members, past and present student body presidents, and Carolina alums.
