Happy Pride Month!

The Laurier Library is commemorating Pride month! We hope all members of our library and university community, both near and far, are staying safe during this time.

This Pride, although it is one without parades and festivals, we would like to take a moment and remember all of the work that members of the LGBTQ+ community have done in the fight for continued gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer rights across the spectrum of diverse identities, including sexual, gender and racial.

Laurier University Library has a broad collection of resources related to the LGBTQ+ community, including:

  • The SAGE Encyclopedia of LGBTQ Studies (2016), edited by Abbie E. Goldberg. This reference work was published online in 2016 and focuses on LGBTQ issues and identity primarily through the lenses of psychology, human development and sociology, emphasizing queer, feminist and ecological perspectives on the topic.
  • Women & Gender Studies @ ProQuest – Provided by ProQuest. Business & Economics Librarian. This resource provides access to full text articles on the subject of women and gender studies, including queer theory and LGBTQ history.

And the Laurier University has a number of resources for those who anyone looking for help or support during this time:
