Pride Month: Sharing resources and knowledge

Pride Month: Sharing resources and knowledge

On June 28, 1969, the Stonewall riots for gay liberation began in New York City which then spawned a human rights movement that would launch similar protests and eventual Pride events across much of the United States and into Canada in 1971.

Pride celebrates and recognizes the rights and achievements of people belonging to the Two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual and/or additional sexually- and gender-diverse identities (2SLGBTQIA+) community. With Pride events happening across the country this month and into the summer, here are some resources of interest to everyone.

Queen’s 2SLGBTQIA+ resources

Queen’s Human Rights and Equity Office shares numerous resources and programs to recognize and celebrate sexual and gender diversity. The Positive Space sticker program and information sessions have been delivered across campus for more than two decades to help make Queen’s a welcoming and safe space for everyone. This full resource guide lists a glossary of terms, locations of gender-neutral washrooms on campus as well as resources in the Kingston community.

Be sure to check out programming and resources from the Yellow House Student Centre for Equity and Inclusion, the Queen’s University Association for Queer Employees resources group, and the LGBTQ+ health library guide.

Toolkit for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Nursing

Designed for nursing educators, students and professionals, this comprehensive online toolkit shares five online learning modules and other key articles and resources to help improve health care for people in the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Dr. Marian Luctkar-Flude of the School of Nursing and PhD student Benjamin Carroll are part of the team who created the resource.

Queer Med Resources

Compiled by Emma Monti, leader of the QueerMed Interest Group in the School of Medicine, this list covers Kingston-specific resources, education and training and books on 2SLGBTQIA+ topics in medicine, just to name a few.

Rainbow Health Ontario

A program of Sherbourne Health, Rainbow Health Ontario creates opportunities for the healthcare system to better serve 2SLGBTQIA+ communities.
