This podcast illustrates the story of how LGBT activists from Queen’s University in the mid-80’s to early 90’s, advocated for the city to recognize an official ‘Pride’ day for the LGBT community, only to be turned away multiple times over the years by homophobic council members, and shunned by homophobic Kingstonians. They never gave up – and we now owe our thanks to them for the month-long pride that we celebrate here in Kingston.
