Name that Place!
Over the next few weeks, I will be posting a few older photos from the CLGA's collection. In many cases, the CLGA acquired photographs with little or no contextual information. Our resident archival experts have managed to identify some of the places (and people) in the photos, but we still rely on participation from our friends and allies in the community to help us learn more about the photographs we have and what they mean to the LGBTQ people in Toronto and across Canada.
Let's start with an easy one. We believe this photo was taken in 1982 at Hanlan's Point, Toronto Island, at a Pride Party/Picnic.... do you know anything more about this photo? Were you there? Do you have any interesting stories to tell us about this event or others that took place at Toronto Island? Looks like a fabulous party!
