Proud to Be

Queer Canadian Histories of the 1960s-1970s

Proud to Be features intersectional stories from the 1960s and 1970s that build context for queer movements and solidarities—as well as their ongoing relevance today—including the first gay rights protests and Pride events, the founding of queer presses, theatres, and archives, advances in queer rights, surveillance of queer people, and crackdowns against gay bars.
