    On August 28, 1971, roughly 100 people from Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and the surrounding areas gathered in the pouring rain at Parliament Hill for Canada’s First Gay Liberation Protest and March. They presented a petition to the government with a list of ten demands for equal rights and protections.

    Simultaneously, another much smaller group of roughly twenty gay activists demonstrated at Robson Square in Vancouver.
