New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

Wednesday June 12 @ 6:30pm

An event hosted by Kingston WritersFest.

Join Lambda-award-winning writer Michael Rowe at the Screening Room for a conversation about Pridea book that reflects on the 50th anniversary of Toronto’s first gay rights march. Michael will talk with Trevor Campbell, host and creator of the You Made Me Queer podcast, about the history of this important march and how it helped lay the groundwork for what has become one of the largest gay pride festivals in the world. They’ll also explore the challenges the queer community has faced since.

Accompanying the onstage conversation will be a gorgeous slideshow of 120 photographs by artist Angel Guerra whose portraits shine a light on moments of joy, strength, ferocity, resilience and love. At a time when 2SLGBTQI+ rights are under renewed threat throughout the world, this is an opportunity to connect with community and offer solidarity, as well as celebrate.
