“The Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Studies at Yale University is pleased to announce that Nessette Falu will be joining LGBT Studies for the 2013-2014 academic year as the next Sarah Pettit Doctoral Fellow.  The Fellowship is supported by the Sarah Pettit Fund, which was established in 2003 as a permanent endowment to honor and perpetuate the memory of lesbian activist Sarah Pettit, who earned her BA from Yale in 1988. Pettit died in 2003 in the midst of a high profile career as a writer, editor, and LGBTQ advocate. She was for many years the editor-in-chief and vice president of OUT Magazine, which she co-founded in 1992.  In 1999, she was appointed the senior editor of Newsweek’s Arts and Entertainment section. She also served on the advisory board of the New York Lesbian and Gay Anti-Violence Project.”
