Donor Profile: William D. Lubart

William D. Lubart, PhD
“CLAGS stands as a welcoming light
to scholars, students, artists,
and activists who wish to
enhance their knowledge
of LGBT issues and
history. As a therapist,
I am reminded daily of
the importance of our
narratives as a form of
bearing witness, as well as
their transformative power
to heal. When I learned that
the CLAGS audio archives were in
disarray, I believed it was critical that they be preserved
and maintained. We need to celebrate our
stories—to honor and remember those who have
passed and to assure that future researchers will be
fully aware of the struggles many of us have faced
to secure our place at life’s table.”
Dr. Lubart is a psychologist and psychoanalyst in private practice
in New York City, where he specializes in working with
LGBT individuals and couples. He is on the faculty of the
William Alanson White Institute of Psychoanalysis, where he
chairs the Catherine Stuart Memorial Diversity Fund and the
Institute’s Committee on Diversity. The National Association
of the Dually Diagnosed has honored Bill with its National
Leadership Award.
Bill Lubart responded immediately and enthusiastically
to our call for support for an audio
archive. The William D. Lubart Audio Archive
containing recordings of nearly two decades
of CLAGS colloquia, roundtables, and conferences
will be unveiled on our website by the
end of the year.
