Mapping Queer History in Now - UPDATE

Only minutes after we sent the letter to Now, we received a call from the Editor.  The response from Now was apologetic that the CLGA had been misnamed, left off the map (which was a complete oversight and not intentional) and for the inaccurate information attributed to us.
They have promised to print the letter in a CLGA approved abreviated form.
One of the main issues for us here at the archives is that we want to encourage engagement with the past but in a sensitive and accurate way.  The Editor at Now as suprised and happy to hear that the good news is we're here to help navigate through the innaccuracies and muddled accounts to get at the real stories.  Part of how we keep our stories alive is by provide support to local and international journalists, artists, writers, filmmakers, students, academics and the general public.  We hope that more Torontonians and the writers from Now will come to us for assistance with projects of this kind now and in the future.

We are regularly open for public service Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays from 7:30pm-10pm, or online via remote access by emailing info@clga.ca
