Happy New Year! The WordPress.com stats helper generated a 2014 annual report for the Calgary Gay History Project website. This was a record year for us.
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Also I would like to warmly thank the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation. I received a letter on January 2nd with the good news of a research grant that will support the book project as well as travel to Victoria, Vancouver and Saskatoon to visit their queer archives.
Finally, I would like to give a shout out to our colleagues to the North who are working on the Edmonton Queer History Project, and an exciting initiative this month to harvest their stories and archival materials.
