CENSORED LIVES: Suppression, resistance and free speech

Censored Lives exhibit at CLGAExhibit dates: 

Wednesday, June 30, 2010 to Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Description: 

This exhibition opens Wednesday, June 30 and runs until September 1st on the 3rd floor, community space of 34 Isabella Street.

This will be the first archival exhibition to be installed in the CLGA’s new home, and it focuses on the moments of tension between what has been defined as obscene and the right to offend or the right to free speech.  Inspired by recent controversy, this show is meant to provide the context for the larger debate about censorship and free speech in the queer community.

The show features a film installation by filmmaker William Craddock.

A few pictures from the show, the contents are materials that have been censored or relating to the efforts of the LGBTQ communities to reverse censorship

NOTE TO RESEARCHERS:
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.
