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!
