Hi everyone! We hope you’re having a great summer, and hopefully you’re enjoying the summer heat at the beach or pool. Speaking of which, did you know there used to be a pool in the Unistructure? It was located where the fountain in Admissions is now! Check out this picture of it, and click the link in the caption to visit the Digital Commons for more info:
Happy Pride Month! We have a display up on the first floor of the library with Pride themed reading materials, so come check it out if you’re on campus (and, of course, visit the Bryant Pride Center). If you’re not on campus, you can check out the archival materials collected in the Gale Archives of Sexuality and Gender database, or these organizations’ websites with resources you can view online:
- Youth Pride Inc.– Youth Pride Inc. provides a supportive environment for youth who identify as LGBTQ* or those who are questioning their identity. They host a variety of events, which you can view on their calendar!
- SAGE Rhode Island– SAGE focuses on issues around aging and healthcare in the LGBTQ* community.
- TGI Justice– This organization provides legal services for transgender and gender variant /non-conforming people in California. Read more about how the organization started and their mission here!
