Walk. Vote. Educate Yourself.

The Calgary Queer History Project is excited to be participating in Jane’s Walk again this year.  We will be launching a new gay history walk heading Downtown instead of last year’s Beltline Walk.  We are meeting up at CommunityWise (the Old Y), 223 12 Ave. SW on Saturday, May 3rd from 10-11:30 AM.  Dress warmly!

Do you like the Calgary Queer History Project?  You can show your affection for us by voting for our short video proposal in Telus’ STORYHIVE competition.  If successful we will get $10,000 to produce a short queer history doc.  Vote: here!

Finally, did you know that our project researcher and volunteer Tereasa Maillie, has her own blog too: HistoryMinion.  She describes it as: “a porridge of history as it relates to current events in the news.”  Check out her latest post about Russia, gay rights, and how they are now moving backwards on the human rights front and potentially creating a public health disaster.
