The Calgary Gay History Project is in Ottawa, or YOW, this week (again). We just spent the day at Library and Archives Canada, looking into new references about Calgary’s historic gay community.
A sunny day to be inside the archives!
Stay tuned for future weekly posts. And don’t forget, it is only three weeks until the world premiere of Legislating Love at Sage Theatre – get your tickets today!
This week we are in Ottawa combing through the stacks of Library and Archives Canada. Having just gone through the Klippert Supreme Court Case files (hooray), there are now three boxes from the Delwin Vriend Supreme Court Case files to go through…
Library and Archives Canada is virtually next door to the Supreme Court, and it is poignant to be researching historical documents at the place where they were originally created.
We are on a mini-hiatus now until our upcoming 25th Anniversary screening of My Own Private Idaho on Tuesday, October 11th with the Calgary Cinematheque Society. Look for our next Calgary gay history blog post on Thursday that week.
