Read with Pride

By Joan Milligan

To celebrate Pride Month, the University Libraries announces its new LGBTQ+ Pride Resources guide for the University’s LGBTQ+ community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and related communities).

You will find thoughtful reading suggestions, of course — fiction, biography, history, intersectionality and legal rights. For a newly active ally, the guide contains a glossary, a guide to symbols and some history beginning with the spontaneous uprising by the gay community in June of 1969. The uprising, sparked by a police raid at the Stonewall Inn, is the event remembered every June by Pride Month events.

A “Pride at UD'' section gives information about the Ally+ workshop available to the campus community; a list of student services and affinity groups; and a video about Marianist values and embracing those who identify as LGBTQ+. 

Our Pride list in the leisure reading collection can help you find a great book to round out your summer reading. Our continually refreshed leisure reading collection is located in the lobby of Roesch Library.
