Canadian Queer History
Rights & Freedoms
While today we enjoy more rights and freedoms since the 60’s, the road to achieving these rights has been hard fought and the battle continues even today to ensure that all members of the LGBT2Q+ community can enjoy equal protections and rights in our country.
Many of the elders in our community can still remember a time in which you could lose your job for being openly homosexual, denied services in multiple sectors and businesses and in which harassment was commonplace yet there was no one to turn to for recourse.
Our community has been resilient throughout the decades and this lesson is one that should always be remembered. Explore the timeline and learn about the challenges on the road to achieving a end to legalized discrimination.
