Before the Parade A History of Halifax’s Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Communities, 1972-1984 by Rebecca Rose

$19.99

In Before the Parade, journalist and activist Rebecca Rose brings her queer femme, feminist perspective to this compelling, and necessary, history of the gay, lesbian, and bisexual community in Halifax.

Here are stories of being at the forefront; of founding a group to fight for gay liberation just three years after the Stonewall riots, of initiating the first nationally coordinated gay and lesbian day of action in 1977, and of spearheading a campaign to include sexual orientation in the Human Rights Act. A thoroughly researched, narrative history, this foundational collection includes perspectives and insights from the artists, businesspeople, academics, and organizers who–by way of living their lives, and through their activism–made it possible for so many others to exist, to be out, to be proud, to continue to push for change.

With over 40 black and white images and two colour inserts, Before the Parade shines a brilliant light on LGB Halifax’s compelling–and never before told–history.
