Celebrating Pride Month 2024

The Progressive Pride Flag, designed by Daniel Quasar in 2018

This year the Wilfrid Laurier University Library celebrates Pride Month by highlighting diverse voices throughout our collection through a number of digital displays. These displays offer insight into the lives of members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community through a wide range of voices and media. 

These collections include: 

Pride 2024 - Diverse Voices - This collection brings together queer authors from around the globe to focus on diversity and intersectionality within the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, with fiction, histories, and memoirs examining how our identities impact our lived experiences.

LGBTQ+ Graphic Novels - This collection from 2023 celebrates and amplifies 2SLGBTQIA+ voices, authors, illustrators, and artists. The works featured in this collection range from mainstream voices, such as DC Comics, to smaller presses. These volumes feature coming out stories, stories about heroes in the community, stories about different sexual orientations and gender identities, and stories about love, loss and decentering normative narratives.

2SLGBTQ+ Pride Month Book Display - This collection from 2022 celebrates the 2SLGBTQIA+ writers, researchers, artists, and storytellers. The featured works include stories about coming out and about tragedy, but also work to de-centre the predominance of these themes within 2SLGBTQIA+ literature. These stories also celebrate and discuss everyday life, romance, dating, and navigating queerness alongside experiences of racialization, disability, gender diversity, and class, among other things.

We hope these collections inspire you to experience a new diversity of voices across the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. 

Happy Pride!
