First Gay Rally

This is a news clip of the first gay liberation movement rally in Canada. There are several other interesting clips grouped with it in the "Gay and Lesbian Emergence: Out in Canada" section of the CBC online archives. For context see my previous blog on history as a human right. The rally took place in the same movement that gave birth to The Body Politic. A few short weeks after this rally a gay liberation group (Gays of Ottawa) was formed in the capital.

Enjoy a brief glimpse into Canada's gay liberation history:)
