Saskatchewan Resources for Sexual Diversity
Saskatchewan Resources for Sexual Diversity (SRSD) is a website developed by the Special Collections Department of the University of Saskatchewan Library with the support of many interested individuals and institutions. Our generous contributors are listed in the Credits section. The project seeks, in as many formats as possible, to provide access to and information about resources concerning sexual and gender diversity issues. Visitors exploring the site will discover video clips, audio files, finding aids to manuscript collections, personal memoirs, chronologies, links to web resources, journal indexes and bibliographies.
The site’s particular focus is material relating to the experience of members of the lesbian, gay, and transgender communities in Saskatchewan. Most of the physical resources can be found at participating Saskatchewan libraries and archives.
Added and Updated for 2012:

“No social movement can survive without two important elements: an
intellectual framework, and a collective memory....We are what has
happened to us, and therefore the record of the experience is essential
in the process of becoming, and in the establishment of identity.”
