We had over 100 participants on the Pride Week Calgary Gay History Walk last night – see photos below. People learned about downtown sites of significance to the LGBTQ community and we had a live tweeting conversation between Mayor Nenshi and gay history walkers about the lack of a Pride Flag flying at City Hall (one of our stops).
Walkers also picked up hot-off-the-press Kickstarter postcards for the Writing Calgary’s Gay History Campaign (pledge, pledge, pledge, please).
Thanks go to the anonymous donor who slipped me cash on the walk as well as to Polish Queer Historian, Bart, who gave me his book QueerWarsaw – what a treat! Finally, there was a lovely reception hosted by Calgary Outlink at the back patio of CommunityWise Resource Centre.
Come see us at the Calgary Gay History Festival Booth this Sunday at the Pride Festival from Noon – 6:00 PM.
