Pride in Vic Park: Outliers - Calgary's Queer History Screening

Date: August 31, 2018
Location: Memorial Park Library
Time: 7 - 9 pm


Pride in Vic Park is a multi-generational, inclusive and educational event to celebrate Pride Week in Calgary. 

Calgary’s Queer History is a deep dive into the historical, social and political forces, which shaped the development of the queer community in Calgary. Featuring extensive footage and B-roll film from Calgary Pride in the 90’s, queer leaders recount a decade of turmoil, loss, and growth of activism and human rights. 

The film is a first-hand account of the frontlines of LGBTQ2+ activism at a time when the right to be out in Alberta was not legally protected, visible or developed. Spanning stories from 1960-present day, this feature length documentary delves into the moments and victories, which brought an entire community from the darkness into the light.  For more information: www.calgaryqueerartssociety.com.
