The ArQuives is pleased to announce that the SOY Archive, a full 14 boxes of materials, has been donated to the archives.

The Supporting Our Youth (SOY) project was launched in April 1998. The program was developed after consulting with LGBTQ youth in Toronto who had a strong desire for more social programming and more activities targeted to youth as an “entry point” to the LGBTQ community.

SOY was originally meant to serve as a three-year community development project with the goal of creating opportunities for LGBTQ youth in the areas of recreational activities, culture and arts, employment, housing and mentoring. In 2004, SOY became a permanent program of the Sherbourne Health Centre.

CONSTRUCTION NOTICE:

As we continue our efforts to make The ArQuives more accessible, we are renovating the front of the house to add a ramp to the front entrance. Please note that there will not be any construction work done during public service hours. Should there be any disruptions affecting our access to the front door and/or work in the house during this process, we will post a notice as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we try to make The ArQuives more accessible to all. If you have any questions/concerns, please contact the Executive Director, Raegan Swanson, at executivedirector@arquives.ca


The ArQuives 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 ArQuives 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.
