"The Thing I'm Most Proud Of" : The Neil Richards Legacy of Queer Culture and History

This exhibit honouring the legacy of Neil Richards will run from September to October.

Curators: David Bindle, Stevie Horn

Locations : Murray Library Link Gallery, Ground Floor, and Room 301. 

The title of this exhibit comes from a June 16, 2015 interview in the Star Phoenix with Neil Richards, in reference to his decades-long work in collecting LGBTQ+ books, artifacts, documentary history, and other ephemera. Neil Richards moved to Saskatoon to work at the University of Saskatchewan Library in 1972, and over the next 45 years, he was a driving impetus behind the gathering and reclaiming of Queer histories in this province and beyond. This exhibition celebrates Neil and the astounding impact his collection practice and advocacy has had on the preservation of Queer history. Read more. . .
