Harvard group seeks degrees for gays expelled
Harvard group seeks degrees for gay students expelled in 1920, plans rally for Lady Gaga visit
By The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) ' Harvard students and faculty are planning a rally to urge administrators to award posthumous degrees to seven students expelled from the Ivy League school in 1920 because they were gay or perceived to be gay.

The students plan to rally Wednesday during a campus visit by Lady Gaga, who will be at Harvard to launch her Born This Way anti-bullying foundation. The singer has been a strong activist for the gay community.

The group says it wants Harvard to formally abolish its so-called "secret court," a tribunal of administrators that investigated charges of homosexual activity among students in 1920.



Harvard administrators apologized in 2002 after a student reporter searching the school's archive came across a file labeled "secret court" and reported on the school's expulsion of the students.
