Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Many gay students still felt unwelcome on the Fullerton College campus, including Mike, who preferred to not disclose his last name. In an interview with Hornet feature editors in the March 30, 1984 issue of the student newspaper, Mike noted that “There is a very large gay student body here, and they wouldn’t mind being open about it.” The situation for gays and lesbians did improve by the 1990s. On October 20, 1997, female impersonators invaded the Student Center for the first drag show on campus. Sponsored by the Lambda Society, the show starred students as well as professional performers.
