Gay History is important. The new YYC’s LGBTQ2S+ Legacy Project is looking for community input. What do you imagine a permanent commemoration of our history could be? CALGARY NEEDS YOUR STORY × SHARE IT WITH US.
Also, Pride will be here in no time. The Calgary Gay History Project is offering two history walks again this year. The event is free and for all ages. Everyone welcome.
Thursday, August 31st, 7:00 – 8:30 pm

I have been on this wonderful event. I am glad it is being done again. There was one up at the university as well. I know every one will have a great time and learn a lot about gay history.
