Upcoming Events and Holiday Hiatus

The Calgary Gay History Project is going to be subdued over the next four weeks. However, you can look forward to these Spring programming events.

Sunday, April 23rd 7 PM @ The Globe Cinema

We are partnering with the Calgary Underground Film Festival to present the WORLD PREMIERE of THE UNTOLD TALES OF ARMISTEAD MAUPIN. The film is about the celebrated author whose Tales of the City books were groundbreaking works of gay fiction. This series of nine books published between 1978 and 2014 mirrored developments in the gay rights movement across North America.
