Supporters of the CLGA gathered at the City of Toronto Archives April 20 to listen to John Lorinc, editor of “Any Other Way: How Toronto Got Queer,” talk about the transformation of Toronto by queer communities. The occasion was the annual Guardian Event, held to recognize and celebrate the support and commitment of our most generous donors.

Any other way - how Toronto got queerGuardians are those individuals and organizations who generously commit at least $1,000 annually to ensure that the Archives can continue to cover the operational expenses necessary to acquire, preserve, organize and give public access to LGBTQ2+ stories – our treasures – for generations to come. Established in 1973, the CLGA is the largest independent organization of its kind in the world and we champion the need for an independent repository of our history, our stories and our records.

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.
