: Not that there's anything wrong with them*, but when was it politically correct , and required, to have Gay and Lesbian Organizations on campus? In my days, I would have formed a strictly hetrosexual organizations (and established the entry requirements for woman who were to be inducted), but an organization based solely on sexual orientation was frowned upon. When did this expression become not only OK, but required?

: *thanks to the Seinfeld writers.

I guess you'd have to read a history of the gay liberation movement to find out when. As to why, there is strength in numbers. Heteros don't need the support of an organization because they aren't oppressed. Gays and lesbians are.
