June 15: A walk through Toronto’s queer past

Heritage Toronto tour of sites of the Church-Wellesley village

You can join the ArQuives, formerly the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, on a walk through Toronto’s queer past on June 15.

The Heritage Toronto tour visits some of the sites of the Church-Wellesley village, where for much of the past 70 years the LGBTQ+ community congregated, and follow the footsteps of activists who struggled to find a public space they could call their own.

The tour begins at The ArQuives, 34 Isabella Street, at 4 p.m. and ends at the AIDS Memorial at Barbara Hall Park, 519 Church Street, at 5:30 p.m.

Register for free (a $10 donation is encouraged) at Heritage Toronto online.
