The Center serves three distinct but overlapping constituencies: the world of academic religious scholarship; faith communities; and LGBTQ people and organizations. For each of these constituent groups, CLGS is committed to providing programming and support for research, resources, education for leadership, and community-building/advocacy.

The LGBTQ Religious Archives Network (LGBTQ-RAN) www.lgbtqreligiousarchives.org, a program of CLGS, is an innovative venture in preserving history and encouraging scholarly study of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender religious movements around the world. LGBTQ-RAN has a two-fold basic purpose. First, it assists LGBTQ religious leaders and groups in determining how best to preserve their records and papers in appropriate repositories. Secondly, LGBTQ-RAN provides an electronic information clearinghouse for these archival collections and other historical data about LGBTQ religious history for the use of historians, researchers and other interested persons.
