๐Ÿณโ€๐ŸŒˆ Celebrating Pride Month at Edinburgh Napier University

The month of June is Pride Month and here at the Library we “pride” ourselves on being an inclusive and welcoming place to visit. We thought it might be interesting to share with you some history about Pride Month and show you some resources for learning more about LGBTQ+ culture.

The reason that Pride occurs in June is because it marks the date of the Stonewall riotsย in America. This was a significant turning point in LGBTQ+ rights, galvanising movement towards greater equality. The first Pride parade occurred a year later on the anniversary of the riot, and parades around the world have marked the occasion ever since.

Pride Month is a celebration of how far LGBTQ+ rights have come and about bringing attention to work that still needs to be done. It’s also about having a lot of fun and some truly fabulous parades!

If you are an LGBTQ+ student you can joinย Edinburghย Napierโ€™s LGBTQ+ Societyย or find out more about the student LGBTQ+ community on theย Queer Napierย site. Staff can join theย Universityโ€™s thriving LGBTQ+ Networkย or visit ourย web pagesย to learn more about becoming an ally.

The Library has a wealth of books and articles on the subject. From the history of LGBTQ+ rights to current Legal information to keep you informed. Use LibrarySearchย to find what you are looking for, orย contact usย for help with any of your research needs.ย 

Here are some items available through the Library to get you started:ย 

Same-sex, different politics: success and failure in the struggles over gay rights

Lgbt Activism and the Making of Europe A Rainbow Europeย ย 

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people (LGBT) and the criminal justice system

Happy Pride Month 2021! ๐Ÿณโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿณโ€๐ŸŒˆ
