Pride Month is celebrated every year during the month of June in recognition of the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals have had on local, national, and international history and culture. Pride Month commemorates the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan, which were widely regarded as a tipping point for the gay liberation movement and struggle for gay rights in the United States.

This display showcases copies of archival resources from the three programs that make up Western Libraries Heritage Resources: the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies, Special Collections, and University Archives and Records Management.
