SAIT Celebrates Pride Week 2020!
At SAIT, we are pleased to be able to provide an inclusive, safe, supportive and inviting space to everyone, regardless of age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation.
At the Library, we strive to contribute to that inclusive space by acquiring resources on topics about or related to LGBTQ+ interests and/or issues. Here are just a few of the resources that we have here in the Library:
