Pride 2012

This year the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (CLGA) celebrated Pride in a variety of ways. A troupe of helpful volunteers remained at 34 Isabella Street to host tours, explaining to visitors the holdings and history of the Archives. The Community Engagement Committee (CEC) and friends took to the streets for the Dyke March. No doubt, revellers and participants alike experienced the blazing sun and incredibly hot weather. Nevertheless, the flotilla of CLGA volunteers persevered and, while I can only speak for myself, I do think everyone enjoyed a proud and celebratory Dyke March experience. Flanked by participant groups such as the Derby Girls who wore big smiles and generated positive energy, all told it was a wonderful day. Thank you to the Dyke March volunteers and supporters who help make such a wonderful event happen. Pride also involves a crowd of merrymakers to cheer people on, and visitors to 34 Isabella Street who care to learn about the significance of the Archives. Thank you friends for taking part in the festivities of Pride 2012. See you next year!
