The Queerly Festive Dinner and Show was a great success with more than 200 people gathering in good cheer. It was at this event that the YYC Legacy Project released its “Story Map.” This interactive map collected the feedback of 400 people who participated in the project’s community consultation process.
You can find the Story Map: here. It is recommended and engaging reading for the holiday season.
The YYC Legacy Project will be embarking on Phase II in the new year, which will include design charettes and other public input initiatives to further refine the idea of what a community commemoration project will look like. Please participate as you are able.
Our friend, Aftin, from Theatre Junction, asked us to let you know about the queer multidisciplinary performance, MDLSX, which they are presenting January 25-27, as part of the High Performance Rodeo. Tickets start at $20 at theatrejunction.com.
Finally, it recently occurred to us that the Calgary Gay History Project started about five years ago. Our history continues to surprise and inspire us. Thank you, readers, for your ongoing enthusiasm for this work.
We warmly wish you a safe and joyous holiday season with a good slip into 2018!
