Atlantic Canadian Queer/Trans+ Archives and History Virtual Symposium

The Atlantic Canadian Queer/Trans+ Archives and History Virtual Symposium will bring together archivists, community historians, grassroots organizations, and members of academic communities to discuss a variety of topics relating to Queer/Trans+ Archiving and History in Atlantic Canada. The Queer Heritage Initiative of New Brunswick (QHINB) seeks to pay homage to the Atlantic Canadian Gay & Lesbian Conferences that were held by activists throughout Atlantic Canada in the 1970s and 1980s. While these activist conferences were focused on the fight for human rights and resources for Queer/Trans+ people, the goal in hosting this virtual symposium is to restore some sense of connection between those in Atlantic Canada who are engaged in preserving the archives and histories of former Queer/Trans+ activists and community members.

This symposium will provide participants with the opportunity to share knowledge of their work relating to 2SLGBTQIA+ history in Atlantic Canada with each other and the general public. Any proposals related to Queer/Trans+ History in the Atlantic region are welcome!
