The UWO Research Facility for Gay and Lesbian Studies is the umbrella under which the Hudler Archives and the Pride Library first began. The Pride Library is a space where sexual diversity is celebrated and advocated in the spirit of the annual 2SLGBTQ+ Pride marches across Canada and throughout the world.
