June is Pride Month

June is Pride Month; celebrate with STC Library

In the United States, LGBTQIA+ Pride Month commemorates the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. Many events are held during June to recognize the impact LGBTQIA+ people have made on society.

Transgender 101 with Antonia Harter

Antonia HarterAntonia Harter presented Transgender 101 in the auditorium at Mid-Valley Campus on Tuesday, March 22nd at 10AM. Through a partnership with faculty member Jenny Chamberlain, STC Library was able to record the presentation for posterity. Antonia Harter has presented Transgender 101 for students, faculty, and the community at STC for over ten years. She has decided to retire the presentation this year, and so we were privileged to archive this influential and historic lecture.

We are excited to share the full presentation and Q&A session, now available on our YouTube page.
