Running from March 24 to May 22, 2016 in “We Could be Heroes (Just for One Day),” Toronto photographer Tania Anderson turns this traditional search for heroes on its head. Through a series of fourteen portraits, she highlights diverse Toronto-based artists and activists who are rarely celebrated for their contributions to queer communities.
