we demand : Gay & Black Glossary


we demand
On 1971-08-21 gay lib groups across Canada held a simultaneous demonstration to demand equal civil rights for gays. I was chairman of G*A*T*E (Gay Alliance Toward Equality) at the time and lead the Vancouver contingent, though at the time I had no idea this particular demonstration would be looked on as special in history. On 2011-08-26 to 2011-08-28 academic historians from all over the world converged on Vancouver BC for a conference called We Demand to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the demonstrations and to discuss gay liberation in Canada at the period. I was one of the speakers at the conference.
