About This Guide

This guide includes many important practical resources for LGBTQ+ folks, including:

This guide was created to collect and present campus and local-area community resources for LGBTQ+ students, staff, faculty, and visitors of the UW Bothell and Cascadia College campus community. It was originally put together to accompany this last June's Pride Month book display in the campus library lobby.

Please take a look at the Books and Films tabs on the left to see everything that was on display. The theme of the display was Queer Voices Across the Spectrum, celebrating the lives and works of queer people who are often marginalized in the rush for normalization and assimilation. The display may be gone but the books and films are all still available!

If you know of an educational resource or service that should be in this guide, please contact me at gustni@uw.edu to let me know!

Pride is Intersectional

The flag above is modified from the traditional rainbow flag to honor the lives of black and brown queer people, and flew this June in Philadelphia [see here for more context and critique]. It is particularly meaningful as this June was the first anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub massacre in Orlando, FL, where the majority of the victims were Latinx and other queers of color.

The history of the modern "gay rights" movement in the US was made in large part by queer and trans Black and brown folks, but their stories are often whitewashed or altered to fit dominant narratives. Three of these icons are Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, and Stormé DeLarverie, who all played key roles in the Stonewall Uprising of June 28, 1969, which ignited the LGBTQ+ liberation movement that continues today. By displaying this flag we remember and honor their foundational contributions to and sacrifices for the movement, and commit to a vision of queer justice that is explicitly intersectional. "No pride for some without justice for all!"
