Pride Month: Resources

Seneca Pride Month 2023

From the Government of Canada:

June is Pride Month in Canada. It signifies the start of Pride Season, a term that refers to the wide range of Pride events that take place over the summer (June to September) when 2SLGBTQI+ communities and allies come together to spotlight the resilience, celebrate the talent, and recognize the contributions of 2SLGBTQI+ communities.

Historically, Pride gatherings emerged from the first large-scale protests for 2SLGBTQI+ rights. In Canada, the first demonstrations took place in Ottawa and Vancouver in 1971. By 1973, Pride events were held in several Canadian cities, including Montréal, Ottawa, Saskatoon, Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg. Toronto's Pride weekend in June is now among the largest Pride events in North America.

Here is a selection of resources where you can learn more about the achievements, contributions, and past & present experiences of 2SLGBTQI+ communities. You can also discover more resources through Library Search.
