Winter Pride at the University of Guelph (U of G) is a 10-day celebration, shining a spotlight on queer activism and visibility. This year, OUTline has curated a Winter Pride digital display featuring works that celebrate LGBTQ2IA+ identities and creations. From fiction with queer characters to historical accounts documenting queer advancement, this curated collection invites readers to explore, reflect, and celebrate the rich tapestry of the LGBTQ2IA+ community. 

At the heart of this display is a commitment to learning and celebrating activism, recognizing history, and encouraging readers to ponder the profound impact of identity. Featured titles in this collection encapsulate the spirit of Winter Pride: 

The Winter Pride 2024 digital display aligns with the overarching goals of Winter Pride, focusing on the celebration of queer identities and creations. Literature plays a pivotal role in understanding the history of queer advancement and the future of activism. By increasing the visibility of LGBTQ2IA+ identities through media representation, this collection contributes to fostering a more inclusive and accepting society. 

For the LGBTQ2IA+ community at the U of G, this display sends a powerful message — that queer identities and activism hold a significant place within the community. These carefully selected works allow community members to deepen their understanding or enjoy novels where their identities are reflected. This collection is not just a display of books; it is a celebration of diversity, resilience, and the ongoing journey towards a more inclusive future.
