Pride Week is beginning, running August 23rd – September 2 (every year Pride gets a bit longer it seems). We do not have to wear masks anymore, politicians and high-profile Calgarians like to be associated with it; this being a municipal election year, I am curious as to how many civic aldermanic candidates we will see out.
This also marks the one year anniversary since we have launched the project. We would like to thank all of the readers, fans, and supporters who have helped along the way. We would also like to thank our elders who have taken the time to sit for interviews and share their stories of Calgary in the 50s and 60s.
You can find the Calgary Queer History crew at events throughout the week, but specifically, you are welcome to join us for the Beltline Gay History Walk on Wednesday, August 28th beginning at 7:30 (see poster below), as well we will be staffing a project info booth at the Pride Street Festival on September 1st – please come say, “hi.” Happy Pride!
