Active History:"Looking Back on Pride"

Fitting with the ongoing LGBT history theme, here's another great article from by Mathieu Brûlé, a doctoral candidate in the Department of History at York University.

Just for fun here's a CBC clip from the 1985 Pride parade in Toronto (honestly, what WOULD I do without CBC Archives clips?)

I attended the Pride parade this year in Toronto and in the light of the controversy over Mayor Rob Ford was surprised to see former mayors of Toronto marching. I only recognized David Miller but read later that there were 3 former mayors in the parade. I found it interesting, though perhaps it means little.
