Beltline Gay History Walk

A stroll through history from Lois Szabo Commons to Club Carousel. This year, the Calgary Gay History Project has time for only one event during Calgary Pride.

On Sunday, August 29th, join Kevin Allen for a gay history walk through the Beltline and learn about the City’s LGBTQ2 past. The walk begins at 5 PM from the new Lois Szabo Commons. At 6 PM we arrive for a reception at Home & Away, the site of Calgary’s first gay bar, Club Carousel (appetizers provided)!

The event is free but we are collecting donations for Outlink: Calgary’s Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity. Book your tickets online: here. The suggested donation is $10. Spaces are limited and masks are encouraged.

Happy Pride!

    Happy Pride, Kevin…I love that you are doing this! Oh, and thanks for connecting me with Lois’ address.

    Fun tidbit. Jane and my first date was at thE restaurant above Club Carousel. We didn’t know it at the time…but somehow we ‘knew it…channelling the ghosts 🙂

    Warm wishes to you and gordon Leslie
