One of our longest-serving volunteers, Don McLeod, has launched his new book Lesbian and Gay Liberation in Canada: A Selected Annotated Chronology, 1976-1981. The chronological reference guide continues where his first volume concluded, revisiting some of the most noteworthy events and people involved in the fight for lesbian and gay rights in Canada in the years leading up to the bathhouse raids in Toronto and the emergence of the first press reports of AIDS. Don pays close attention to important political demonstrations and developments, as well as art and culture with significant lesbian or gay content. Each entry includes a carefully chosen bibliography of sources for further reading. Appendices list lesbian and gay organizations, periodicals, and bars and clubs that were active during this period. 

Don has worked as a volunteer at the CLGA since 1984. He is the head of book and serials acquisitions at Robarts Library and the liaison librarian for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto, where he received a Masters degree in Library Science. Lesbian and Gay Liberation in Canada: A Selected Annotated Chronology, 1976-1981 joins the ranks of other books, articles, and reviews Don has published, including A Brief History of GAY: Canada’s First Gay Tabloid, 1964-1966.

We are thrilled that Don was able to use the collections at the CLGA to inform his work, and we are grateful for his continued contributions to keeping our stories alive. Lesbian and Gay Liberation in Canada: A Selected Annotated Chronology, 1976-1981 is available for purchase at Glad Day Bookshop (499 Church St) or don.mcleod@utoronto.ca.

Some of our materials are stored off site. Before visiting the archives, please send us an email at queeries@clga.ca listing in detail the topics and sources that you wish to consult and we will let you know when they will be available. We aim to respond to email inquiries within 4 business days.

The Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives is located on the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Huron-Wendat. Today, Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

The CLGA strives to gather the stories of the unheard and silenced voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ first peoples of this land. We acknowledge that some stories have already been lost, and we aim to ensure that those that remain and those that are to come are preserved for the future.
