In honor of Pride month, the Libraries invites you to explore LGBTQIA+ history through our online resources, starting with a newly acquired resource – the Gale Archives of Sexuality and Gender. This collection spans the sixteenth to the twentieth century, and features primary source documents relating to the history and study of sex, sexuality, gender research and gender studies research. Documents covering social, political, health, and legal issues impacting LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) communities around the world are included, as well as rare and unique books on sex and sexuality from the sciences to the humanities. For more resources, see our LGBTQ Studies guide.
In addition to your studies, put these resources to use for fun and join the Center for Culture, Equity, and Empowerment and the Alumni Association on Thursday, June 17 for a virtual trivia night. Test your knowledge in the following categories: Pride history, LGBTQ+ icons, Movies and Television, Music, Art, and Mason facts. Show your Mason spirit and get ready for some friendly competition!
