CLAGS Events and Membership Internship

FALL 2021


CLAGS: The Center for LGBTQ Studies welcomes applications for an Events & Membership Intern for Fall 2021. Founded in 1991, CLAGS was the first university-based research center in the United States dedicated to the study of historical, cultural, and political issues of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals and communities. It currently functions as a robust hub of queer events, conversations, and scholarship – from within and beyond CUNY.

This internship offers an excellent opportunity to connect with LGBTQ community and programs, as well as to develop skills in the area of funding/grants research. Please submit a current CV or resume, as well as a short cover letter noting any areas of interest or experience. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Elvis Bakaitis (, Interim Head of Reference and CLAGS Board. We look forward to hearing from you!

Events & Membership Intern 

CLAGS hosts numerous events, workshops, conversations, and other forms of programming. The Events & Membership Intern would help to raise the visibility of these opportunities, assisting with the creation of promotional materials, outreach strategy, and more. Tasks may include:

  • Developing promotional materials based on CLAGS’ dynamic history and present day role
  • Liaising with new members, and helping with additional outreach
