You are welcome here: Celebrating and lifting voices of the transgender community

You are welcome here.

Celebrating and lifting the voices of transgender and gender non-conforming communities.

To honour Transgender Awareness Week and the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, Simon Fraser University Library is highlighting works by transgender authors and researchers, as well as authoritative information on transgender topics. 

"SFU Library respects and values commonalities and differences across race, sex, gender identity, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, ability, nationality, and religion.  We understand that mutually respectful relationships across these identities make us stronger individually and collectively."  -- 2017-2021 SFU Library Strategic Plan
