On June 10th, I will be joining Tom Hooper, a colleague of mine from York University, to give a joint talk at the North York Central Library on the history of lesbian and gay activism in Toronto in the 1970s. Our talk will focus on the concept of gay liberation and its relation to the gay and lesbian movement for human rights. In my portion of the talk, I will be highlighting some of my research on lesbian and gay activism within the labour movement, particularly within the unions representing workers in Toronto libraries.
This will be my first opportunity to present my work in a non-academic setting and I’m looking forward to it.
The North York Central Library is located at 5120 Yonge St. (Click here for directions). The event begins at 7pm and is free.
