Happy Pride! The Laurier Library Commemorates 50 years since Stonewall.

Happy Pride!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the historic Stonewall riots. On June 28th 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, after a police raid, the LGBTQ+ community rose up and demanded their rights be recognized. This is regarded as the start of the gay rights movement and gave birth to the contemporary LGBTQ+ rights movement.

The Laurier Library wants to celebrate this historic milestone with all members of the LGBTQ+ community – both at Laurier and beyond - by wishing everyone a very happy pride!
