The time has come to wrap the first phase of the Calgary queer history project and make a presentation to the community about the findings to date. Calgary does have a secret gay history that we need to cherish and share! To that end, please join me for a public presentation and reception at CommunityWise (the Old Y), 223 12 Ave. SW from 7:30 – 9:00 PM next Wednesday.
Special thanks go to Calgary Outlink, my historian in residency host, and Calgary 2012 who gave us start-up funding for this project. Also I need to thank Del Rath, who stepped up to be a volunteer scribe, chauffeur, researcher and cheerleader. Finally, thank you calgaryqueerhistory.ca readers! The website has had 3000 views to date, with lots of positive comments and feedback.
See you Wednesday!
