Edmonton Queer History Map Tour

On March 8th the Edmonton Queer History Project launched its Edmonton Queer History Map Tour. Written and worked on by Dr. Kris Wells, Darrin Hagen and Michelle Lavoie and using research gathered by Rob Browatzke and the many memories of two Edmonton Pride Seniors Group members… myself and Ron Byers, they printed a large fold out map with 27 locations that were important for the 2SLGBTQ+ community primarily from 1970-2000.

In addition to the walking map, photos, videos, personal stories, articles and other historical information of all 27 sites that describe the community’s involvement in the Downtown on the Project’s website https://EdmontonQueerHistoryProject.ca are now on line.

Maps are available at the following locations or contact michaelphair@shaw.ca for copies. Do check out the website!
