Canadian Queer History
Resistance and Rebellions
It takes a series of events, repressions and lack of basic human rights that galvanize a community to rise up and resist. Many of these protests, rallies, demonstrations and incidents have been forgotten by our community.
It is essential however, that we remember our collective history and acknowledge that these painful, traumatic, and ultimately transformative events happened to our communities that were and still are at risk. Laws were often changed after some of these moments of resistance, but these changes came with great pain for our community–pain that took a long time to be acknowledged and a longer time to receive an apology.
The blood, sweat and tears of the many individuals and groups who have fought for the progress we enjoy today should be remembered to honour them, and so that we never forget the power in a community that comes together to fight and advocate for each other.
