The Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives in Toronto Getting an Upgrade
From the CBC:
The world’s largest independent lesbian and gay archive [Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives] — which happens to be right here in Toronto — is about to get a little bit larger.
At its last council meeting before the Christmas break, councillors voted to free up about $50-thousand to renovate the century old building on Isabella Street so that it’s accessible.
Founded in 1973, the archive is not just a resource for the gay community,” [archive president Dennis] Findlay says.
“It’s very interesting the number of non-LGBTQ people who come here to do research,” he says.
“Because they realize the kinds of struggles that we went through are in many ways the kinds of struggles that other communities of minorities are also going through.”
