In anticipation of World Pride 2014, coming to Toronto this June, Ryerson Library and Archives has put together a display using items from RULA and the The ArQuives – Canada’s LBGTQ2+ Archives –  to highlight just some of the campaigns and events they’ve spearheaded since their beginnings in 1977. Drop by Special Collections on the 4th floor of the library and learn more about the history of RyePride at Ryerson University.

Visit the RyePride website or contact them for more information on the programs and services they offer: ryepride@rsuonline.ca.  Have a look at the RyePride Timeline for more information on the groups history.
