Gertrude Stein Society

The Gertrude Stein Society (GSS) is an organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied members of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, including the Schools of Nursing, Public Health and Medicine. Gertrude Stein, the well known lesbian writer and intellectual, was a medical student at Johns Hopkins near the turn of the century, and the GSS seeks to maintain her legacy of active lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer presence and involvement in the affairs of JHMI today. We are dedicated to maintaining and developing an even more accepting environment for diversity at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. For more information about GSS, email
