2014 Pride Week Recap & Kickstarter Check In

Not only did the Pride Parade and Street Festival this year have a record turn out: 50,000 people by most estimates, it also had politicians of all stripes marching, many for the first time, in support of the LGBTQ community.  (I even picked up a free pride bracelet courtesy of the Government of Alberta!).

Check out the Calgary Gay History Booth’s short video which gives you a flavour of the day (courtesy of Nancy Miller and evolution New Media).

The Kickstarter Campaign is going well, and we are very humbled by the show of support and interest in the book project from both media and everyday Calgarians.  We are halfway through the campaign today, so encourage everyone to share, tweet and talk it up.  All efforts in this regard are really appreciated.

And you could help even more by composing a short video or paragraph on why you think our community’s history is important to you.  Email me at calgarygayhistory@gmail.com and we will share it on social media in support of the Writing Calgary’s Gay History campaign.
