History / Biographical
The McMaster Homophile Association (MHA), referred to in some documents as the Hamilton-McMaster Homophile Association and the Hamilton-McMaster Gay Liberation Movement, was a student group based at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. The MHA was established in 1973 following a campus visit by George Hislop the previous year. The McMaster Homophile Association maintained a library, published a newsletter, hosted speakers, operated a crisis phone line, and organized dances and other events. The MHA was associated with (and its membership overlapped with) the Congeniality Social Club of Hamilton, a disco that also put on shows with go-go boys and drag performers. In September 1977, Dr. Shane S. Que Hee resigned from his position as Secretary/Treasurer of the McMaster Homophile Association, and the group subsequently disbanded.

History / Biographical
Sidney Hugh Godolphin Osborne (1887-1958) was born in London, England on December 28, 1887, the son of Sidney Francis Godolphin Osborne and Margaret Dulcibella (Hammersley) Osborne. Sidney’s brother was Francis D'Arcy Godolphin Osborne, 12th Duke of Leeds, KCMG. Sidney lived openly with men with whom he was romantically involved. Perhaps due to this, he was persuaded to immigrate to Canada as a young man (year unknown). His estate was located outside Niagara Falls, Ontario. Sidney travelled frequently to the United States. He was killed in a car accident on the Queen Elizabeth Expressway on October 9, 1958. The name(s) of his companion(s) have not survived, though the donor's mother knew the last one well.

History / Biographical
For a complete administrative history of the CLGRO please see Appendix A and B of this finding aid, which are pamphlets the organization produced to chronicle their own history in timeline form. The administrative history below cannot be so all encompassing. The Coalition for Lesbian and Gay Rights in Ontario (initially the Coalition for Gay Rights in Ontario) began on January 18 and 19th, 1975. The administrative records from this time largely feature Harold Desmarais overseeing the administration out of a house, 29 Granby Street in Toronto. CGRO was a incorporated not-for-profit coalition organization with the goal to fight for the liberation of the gay and lesbian community in Ontario. At its founding it was made up of 9 groups from around Ontario, but grew to consist of around 30 member groups (this number fluctuated) and hundreds of individual members. They ceased operation ca. 2007-2008. The organization had several administrators throughout its 30+ year history, evident through the records. Their coalition’s focus was always to fight for LGBTQ+ rights publicly and legislatively. The coalition was involved in and initiated several briefs, lobbied for and against various bills, succeeding in one of their central issues, which was for the inclusion of sexual orientation (Bill 7) in the Ontario Human Rights Code. They held educational tours (traveling slideshows around the province), conferences, resource sessions for other activists, and started a university for activists. Coalition members, and group representatives travelled around the province for a number of years as steering committee and annual meetings were held in various cities and towns, however this practice was not maintained throughout the organization’s operation. The Coalition staff themselves, as well as the Coalition groups were the leaders of rallies, protests and community meetings. Liaising with politicians, lobbying government and other organizations. CLGRO had several long term administrators and volunteers, including Harold Desmarais, Tom Warner, Christine Donald, and Nick Mule. The following are several excerpts paraphrased from the CLGRO’s organizational history pamphlet “Way to Go” found in appendix A In February 1975 CGRO established the Committee to Defend John Damien, in support of Damien who was fired from the Ontario Racing Commission for his sexual orientation. CGRO held rallies and benefits for Damien demanding he be reinstated and sexual orientation be made one of the key issues for the 1975 provincial election. This is also around the time when CGRO finished its first brief to the legislature The Homosexual Minority in Ontario, which was presented to the Ontario Human Rights Commission and showcased instances of discrimination in housing and jobs, outlining a series of demands for lesbian and gay rights. In March 1978 CGRO’s second brief, Discrimination and the Gay Minority, was presented at Queen’s Park press conference and gained support from a Toronto Star editorial and a Globe and Mail Queen’s Park columnist. In September of the same year, CGRO’s Never Going Back conference changed the coalition’s structure allowing for the inclusion of individual members. In April 1981 CGRO’s third brief, The Ontario Human Rights Omission, was presented to MPPs. In June a CGRO delegation appeared before the legislative committee for a hearing on Bill 7. Then in August CGRO presented their brief to Arnold Bruner at a public meeting on gay-police relations at Jarvis Collegiate in Toronto. In February 1982 CGRO released The Gay Organizer with the Right to Privacy Committee, an organizing manual for lesbian and gay activists, launching it at the Doing It! national conference. They also reprinted their educational tabloid, Who Are These People and What Do They Want? and committed themselves to producing a What is CGRO? slide show. In September 1982 the first CGRO bike-a-thon held on the Toronto Islands. In April 1986 CGRO presented a draft fourth brief to the Ontario Legislature, documenting cases of discrimination and urging protection. Then in May CGRO held a press conference at Queen’s Park to publicize the brief. Later that day, the Justice Committee amends Bill 7 to include the addition of “sexual orientation” in the Ontario Human Rights Code. In October 1986 (with a grant from the Lesbian and Gay Community Appeal) CGRO produced their finalized fourth brief, Discrimination Against Lesbians and Gay Men: the Ontario Human Rights Omission. On December 2, 1986 the “Sexual Orientation” amendment was passed by the Ontario Legislature after two weeks of debate and media attention. John Damien lived to see this change but died on Christmas Eve, three weeks later of pancreatic cancer. In September 1987 CGRO changed its name to Coalition for Lesbian and Gay Rights in Ontario (CLGRO), and in March 1988 they adopted a new mission statement. CLGRO received $375,000 in April 1992 from Health and Welfare Canada to fund three years of Project Affirmation, a project which studied the health and social service needs of minorities in Ontario. In 1993 they received another $75,000 for outreach work. Then in July 1992 CLGRO published their Happy Families brief, which surveyed 79 discriminatory provincial laws against same-sex relationships. The brief proposed amended wording, and an inclusive definition of “spouse”. CLGRO also called for the establishment of a relationship registry system where registered same-sex relationships would have the same rights and obligations as registered opposite-sex relationships. In November 1992 CLGRO received its letters patent as an incorporated, non-profit organization. In February 1993 Tom Warner, founding CLGRO member was appointed Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission. Then in May 1993 CLGRO adopted a bylaw adding bisexuals to CLGRO’s mission statement and policies. Another bylaw was added to broaden CLGRO’s objectives recognizing that lesbians, bisexuals, and gay men experience the world differently “depending on their sex, race, age, class dis/ability, language, and other factors, and that for many of us the struggle for equality for bisexuals, lesbians, and gay men cannot be separated from other campaigns for justice in which we are engaged.” They then co-sponsored “Taking the Next Step”, a brief presented by the Lesbian and Gay Immigration Task Force (LEGIT) to the Federal Minister of Immigration, which called for same-sex spousal relationships to be recognized in Canadian immigration policy. In May 1994 CLGRO members Tom Warner and Mary-Woo Sims co-founded the Campaign for Equal Families (CEF), which coordinated and lobbied for the passage of Bill 167, the CLGRO Working Group on Relationship Recognition subsumed into CEF. CEF hired organizers and secured letters and signatures from over 20,000 people in support of Bill 167. They also raised $60,000 to fund the campaign. On June 9, 1994 Bill 167 was defeated on second reading by 68-59 votes. “Shame” was shouted from the public galleries and thousands protested the bill’s defeat later that evening. The Campaign for Equal Families became a permanent organization separate from CLGRO. In January 1995 CLGRO celebrated its 20th anniversary and the Rainbow Directory was launched in the same month. In September, “Pass it On” a historical exhibit sponsored by CLGRO, the Lesbian and Gay Community Appeal, and the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives opened and held panel discussions. In May 1996 the first newsletter of the Sexual Orientation in Education Project (SOEP) a CLGRO working group was published. Then in September ON GUARD - a Critique of Project Guardian, a brief written by the Homophile Association of London and CLGRO was also released. In May 1997 Systems Failure, Project Affirmation’s report was released at a press conference in London. In May of the following year CLGRO was restructured to reduce meetings and newsletters to three a year. CLGRO called for the amendment of the Criminal Code to institute a uniform age of consent for anal intercourse in 1998, to conform with the May 1995 Ontario Court of Appeal Carmen M decision. Then in September of 1998 CLGRO declared their opposition to the deportation of Shadmith Chavez to Mexico. In March 1999 CLGRO participated in an OHRC seminar on disability issues and the Human Rights Code, addressing issues around sexual orientation and lesbian, gays and bisexuals with disabilities. On October 25, 1999 the Harris government introduced “Bill 5, An Act to Amend Certain Statutes Because of the Supreme Court of Canada in Decision M v. H.” The bill changed 67 laws, introduced “same-sex partner” as a term, and gave same-sex relationships almost all the rights and responsibilities that opposite-sex common-law relationships have. However it failed to change the Ontario Income Tax Act which used the same definition as the Federal Act. CLGRO supported bill 5 despite the offensive title and “its rhetoric aimed at placating its social conservative constituency (the government says it was forced to act by the Supreme Court and that it has preserved in law the use of the terms “spouse” and “marital status” to apply only to heterosexual relationships).” In November 1999, CLGRO and various other community groups hold a media conference opposing new Toronto police chief Julian Fantino, due to his actions as chief during Project Guardian in London. In February 2000 “Are We Spouses Yet?” a new CLGRO leaflet written by Christine Donald was approved for distribution and provided information on the changes in legal recognition of same-sex couples in Ontario, since Bill 5 (Oct 1999) gave couples almost the same standing as heterosexual common-law couples. June 2000 CLGRO was Honoured group in the Toronto Pride Parade for their 25th Anniversary. CLGRO marched with the banner, while Tom Warner and Marie Robertson sat in the cadillac convertible behind the Grand Marshals. CLGRO sponsored “Queers Making Noise - Activism of All Ages” a forum organized by Supporting Our Youth (SOY) as part of the Rainbow Millennium Celebration. In June 2000, Tom Warner (25 years), Christine Donald (20 years), and Nick Mule (10 years) are all honoured for their volunteer work by the Ontario government in a ceremony. In April 2001 CLGRO launched “Liberation in the 00s” a project to figure out where the community is at and where they want to go, and what makes CLGRO different from other groups. The Project Affirmation follow up continued, CLGRO held meetings with healthcare and social service representatives. They eventually formed a CLGRO reference group called the Rainbow Health Network. In May 2001 the Steering Committee set priorities: to gain prejudice-free workplace; youth issues (coming out issues, age of consent, sex education, prejudice-free schools; relationship recognition; access to health and welfare services; policing and law issues. CLGRO joined LEAF, NAC, EGALE and others in the intervenor coalition to fight Scott Brockie’s appeal of the OHRC tribunal’s February 2000 ruling that his printing firm ‘Imaging Excellence’ should pay the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives $5000 damages for his 1996 refusal - on Christian gounds - to print their letterhead. Nancy Nicol received a $50,000 “established artist grant” from the Canada Council for the Arts for a documentary on lesbian and gay rights in Ontario focussing on CLGRO. In September 2001 Tom Warner and Greg Pavelich assisted with the formation of the broadly based Toronto Police Accountability Coalition and CLGRO becomes a member of a coalition of groups looking at the Ontarians with Disabilities Act. In April 2002, CLGRO supported Marc Hall by applying for an injunction allowing him to take his same-sex partner to his Catholic high school prom. In support of Hall, CLGRO wrote to the Minister of Education, they also presented him with the John Damien Award for his “outstanding contribution” to lesbian and gay rights in Ontario. Then in May 2002 Nancy Nicol’s film, Stand Together: A History of Ontario’s Gay Liberation Movement, Part I premiered at Inside/Out, featuring work by CLGRO. Tom Warner’s book Never Going Back: A History of Queer Activism in Canada was launched in June, then in October the Rainbow Health Network was launched at the 519. In April 2003 the first meeting of the Bawdy House Laws Committee is organized and facilitated by CLGRO. Nick Mule presents on community development work on LGBTTIQ health and social service issues At Egale’s Rainbow Visions Conference at McGill University in May 2003. In May 2004 The John Damien award is given posthumously to Greg Pavelich. A joint CLGRO and Rainbow Health Network project proposal is accepted by the Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition providing funding from Health Canada to form partnerships with provincial health and social services professional associations to develop educational workshops for workers in those sectors about LGBTT issues, the goal was also to develop a Northern Ontario model for networks similar to the Rainbow Health Network, and to expanding the federal social determinants of health. In August 2004 CLGRO members launched a new committee in conjunction with bathhouse owners, health and political organizations to lobby for the repeal of bawdy-house and indecency laws, and to raise money to support court challenges. The following month Steering Committee member Louise Langalais became CLGRO Director as Treasurer, after Christine Donald’s resignation as Director, Christine however remained on as Office Manager. In the same month CLGRO applied for charitable status. CLGRO continued to lobby for governmental changes around LGBTQ+ rights, for health and social services, they ceased operation from 2007-2008

In 1970, Brindley emigrated to Ontario, where she remained for the rest of her life, living in several towns until eventually settling in Toronto. Brindley was very involved in Toronto’s queer community from the 1970s until her death, appearing on a 1972 CBC special, All About Women, that was censored before it could air, in part because of its discussion of homosexuality. She was a passionate grassroots activist with an interest in queer visibility, anti-racism movements, and community-based harm reduction work. She was also an artist who frequently exhibited in Toronto’s first commercial queer art gallery, the O’Connor, as well as operating her own gallery, Artcetera. Brindley was an avid biker and belonged to the Amazons, an all-female motorcycle club.
Scope and Content
The fonds details the activities of Brindley’s life, with a particular focus from the 1970s on. The core of the collection is Brindley’s art career, with art works, image slides, photographs, and ephemera of her own work as well as that of her friend, queer Toronto artist Bruce Eakin.

History / Biographical
The Family Camera Network was a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada funded project from 2016-2019, that worked to develop a collection of family photographs with their accompanying stories, through conducting oral histories with national and trans-national migrants. The work was conducted out of partnering institutions, The ArQuives and the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). The ArQuives iteration of the project focused on LGBTQ+ migrants. The project explored the relationship between photography and the idea of family, whether biological family, or of choice. As well as demonstrating the expanding conceptualization of what family is in Canada, due to same-sex marriage, transnational adoptions, dislocations to pursue economic opportunities or prompted by political instability, climate change, or war. The project worked to document feeling about family, how family is defined and defined differently, how connections are felt through photography.
Scope and Content
Records consist of oral history interviews, their raw files from both cameras used (the one focused on the interviewee and the one focused on the photos being discussed), edited and redacted film content. The records also pertain to the photos donated, these are largely photos that are born-digital or scanned photos and records.

History / Biographical
Established in 1969, the University of Toronto Homophile Association served as Canada’s first university- based homophile association. On October 15, 1969, Jearald Moldenhauer, one of the UTHA’s founding members, placed a personal advertisement in the University’s paper The Varsity, seeking “those interested in discussing the establishment of a student homophile association”. On October 24, 1969, 8 University of Toronto students and members of the public met at Moldenhauer’s McCaul Street apartment for the Association’s first meeting. The UTHA’s first official public gathering was held on November 4, 1969 at University College. Within a month, the UTHA registered under the University of Toronto’s Student Administrative Council and became an official student organization. The Association’s office was located at 12 Hart House Circle. The UTHA’s initial membership was 18, which increased to 45 by the end of 1969. A membership costed $3 per calendar year. Some of the group’s earliest members included Jearald Moldenhauer, Bill McRay, Ian Young, Charles Hill and Disa Rosen. Charles Hill was appointed as the UTHA’s first chairman, who was then followed by Ian Young. The University of Toronto Homophile Association’s mandate centered around educating the community about homosexuality, combatting legal discrimination against homosexuality, and bringing about social and personal acceptance towards homosexuality. The Association's work included weekly discussion groups, public forums with invited guests, high school speaking engagements, an informal counselling service, research, political advocacy and referral services. As a part of their education and outreach efforts, the UTHA provided resources through UTHA literature, brochures and bibliographies. The Association regularly set a table up in the free speech area of the University of Toronto’s Sidney Smith Hall, where material was distributed, books were sold and questions answered. Weekly discussion meetings were organized to discuss a variety of topics from sexuality and gay liberation, which were held at the upstairs lounge of the Graduate Student Union. The UTHA also organized talks given by guests including: Dr. Franklin Kameny, the President of the Washington Mattachine Society, English Buddhist philosopher Scott Symons, D.E. Harding, Dr. Persasd of the Ontario Department of Health and playwright John Herbert. Members of the Association also gave talks on homosexuality to student groups, high schools and more. The UTHA offered informal counselling services run by volunteers, which would deal with personal, psychological, religious, social and legal questions. UTHA Dances on and off campus were organized regularly. In efforts to combat legal discrimination, the UTHA was involved in political advocacy and research projects on a variety of issues. The Association prepared and submitted a number of briefs to the Federal and Provincial governments, on the Immigration Act, the War Measures Act, the Criminal Code and lobbied for the protection of homosexuals in the Federal and Provincial Public Service. The UTHA also conducted and participated in research projects, including one that examined religious groups’ attitudes towards homosexuality and the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry’s study on male homosexuality in Toronto. Additionally, the UTHA worked on getting the Ontario Ministry of Health’s venereal disease pamphlet revised. Soon after its founding, members of the UTHA became aware of the group’s wider appeal and interest amongst members of the general public. The need for a community group eventually led to the founding of the Community Homophile Association of Toronto in 1971, which was spearheaded by members of the UTHA, including Charles Hill. The UTHA disbanded in 1973.

History / Biographical
Finding its roots in the University of Toronto Homophile Association, the Community Homophile Association of Toronto was officially established on January 3, 1971. Given the growing public interest in the UTHA, the need for a community organization outside of the University became apparent to members of the UTHA. On December 11, 1970, an inaugural meeting was held to officially establish the Community Homophile Association of Toronto. A steering committee of 15 members was appointed, with George Hislop as its Interim Director. CHAT’s first public meeting was held at the Holy Trinity Church in February 1971. A Board of Directors was elected on March 3, 1972, which included George Hislop, Patricia Murphy, Clive Bell, Kathleen Brindley and 6 general members. CHAT’s first meeting was attended by approximately 50 people. By 1972, the Association had 400 paid members, with 150 regular meeting attendees. CHAT’s first office was located at 6 Charles Street. The Association was incorporated in 1974. CHAT’s work as a service community group centered around its “central plank to come out of the state of fear and apprehension which surrounds the public assertion of one’s rights of sexuality”, with a secondary aim to achieve equal civil rights to those of heterosexuals. CHAT’s work sought to provide support services, education, community events and political advocacy. Soon after the Association was established, it received a Federal grant through the Opportunities for Youth Project. This grant of $9000 allowed the Association to provide in person counselling, a 24 hour distress line and legal, medical and psychiatric referrals to the public. Once these funds ran out, these services were maintained by CHAT volunteers. Soon after, CHAT applied for the Local Initiatives Program Grant which was rejected. The Association reapplied with letters of support from the Ontario Mental Hospital, the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry and other distress centres operating in Toronto, and was awarded a grant of $14,602 with extension. This grant was used to employ 8 staff members to restaff the distress centre and to work on educationals for schools and universities. In addition to its support services, education and community events were central to the Association's operations. In its early days, CHAT held weekly general meetings at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, which would would involve discussion groups and guest speakers. In 1972, CHAT established Canada’s first gay community centre at 58 Cecil Street. Formerly a Jewish Synagogue and Chinese Catholic Community Centre, this space provided enough room for CHAT's offices, events and weekly or biweekly dances. The 58 Cecil Street Community Centre was the departure point for Toronto’s first Gay Pride Week in 1972. CHAT community events took place on a regular basis, and included dances, coming out nights (for those who had recently come out), women’s nights and coffee sessions. A resource library was also established, which provided the public with reference material on a variety of subjects, and homophile and gay liberation groups from across North America. Although CHAT’s efforts were largely focused on community education and support, it also was involved in political advocacy. CHAT submitted a number of briefs and lobbied the Provincial and Federal Governments on a variety of issues and existing legislation, which included the Immigration Act, the Criminal Code and the Ontario Human Rights Code. The Association was also involved in the National Gay Rights Coalition and National Gay Election Coalition. Additionally, CHAT played a role in organizing and co-sponsoring events and demonstrations in Toronto and Ottawa. These included Toronto’s first gay picnic at Hanlan’s Point in 1971, Toronto’s first annual Gay Pride Week in 1972, a rally of Canadian and American gay groups to the Ontario Legislature and at Parliament Hill. In June 1973, CHAT's community space moved to 201 Church Street, while CHAT administrative and counselling offices relocated to 223 Church Street. In the fall of 1977 CHAT moved to a smaller office located at 19 St. Joseph Street due to declining membership and interest. CHAT disbanded at the end of 1977.

History / Biographical
The Cabbagetown Group Softball League (CGSL) was officially founded in 1977 by a group of baseball enthusiasts who had gathered to play in an informal fashion at the Riverdale baseball diamond since 1975. They organized with the mandate to provide an opportunity for members of the gay community and their supporters to play softball in a competitive and open atmosphere, free from discrimination on the basis of age, race, physical ability and sexual orientation. For this reason, the founding members wanted the league to be managed by the members themselves and to be free from commercial sponsorship which might lead to valuing of athletic skill over free participation. It was also a founding ideal that the league would have no political affiliation. The league originally comprised four teams and followed the rules published by the Canadian Amateur Softball Association (Softball Canada). In 1978, the league seems to have been briefly known as the “Cabbagetown Professional Group Softball League”. In that same year, the number of teams increased to eight and the CGSL held the first Canada Cup tournament, hosting teams from New York and Milwaukee. The Canada Cup became an annual tournament held every July, with teams from across Canada and the United States taking part. In 1979, the league’s first constitution was published, which stipulated that any changes had to be ratified by a majority vote of two-thirds of its members. In 1980, the constitution was challenged by some members who proposed making the league more competitive. The proposition failed to win sufficient support and a number of members left to found the Riverdale Softball League (RSL). That year, the CGSL was a founding member of the North American Gay Alliance, later known as the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA), which qualified the league to take part in the annual Gay World Series organized under their aegis. The CGSL was elected to host the 5th annual Gay World Series in Toronto in August of 1981, better known as “Series V”. That year, they began following the rules of the American Softball Association to facilitate cross-border participation at tournaments. In 1982 the league voted to allow commercial sponsorship of teams due to the rising costs of tournament organization. In 1983 the RSL disbanded and its members joined the CGSL. Shortly thereafter, in order to accommodate the varying wishes of members, two tiers of teams were created, one recreational and the other competitive. By the late 1990s, there was a separate women’s division in the league. In 2000, the CGSL hosted Gay World Series in Toronto, better known as “Series 2000”. In addition to playing softball, the league organizes annual events, including awards banquets and social gatherings. The league is also active in charity fundraising. The CGSL hosts an annual Christmas party where donations of cash and toys are collected to be distributed through The 519 Church Street Community Centre.

History / Biographical
The Toronto Area Gays and Lesbians (TAGL), originally Toronto Area Gays or TAG, was a volunteer-run queer support, information, and peer counseling phone line founded in 1975 and was active until 2008. TAGL consisted of a group of men and women who offered general information, peer counseling, and in general, provided support to Toronto’s LGBTQ community. Volunteers answered questions, listened to callers, referred callers to resources and organizations, and information on events, places, community groups, and activities. The TAGL phone line were confidential calls, did not use caller id, and callers remained anonymous. They operated from 7:00pm until 10:00 pm, five nights a week. In the first few years of TAG, their office space was located at 651 Yonge Street (third floor). They moved to a space at Hotel Selby at 592 Sherbourne Street and moved again to 500 Church Street in the early nineties. In June 2000, the Toronto Area Gays and Lesbians were honored as a “Hero of our community” at the 3rd Annual Hero Awards Gala in support of Community CARE Home Hospice.

The office in which Gays of Ottawa housed their documents experienced a fire in February of 1979. The documents that survived were those stored in filing cabinets that crashed through the floor and into the basement. Due to this, some records do have burn marks and water stains. Many of the records also show general wear and tear from their use by the organization.
History / Biographical
The Gays of Ottawa (GO) was founded September 14, 1971 by Maurice Boulanger, Michael Black, Charles Hill, Philip Bianco, Jacques Hoffman, Reg Turcotte, and Terrence Reichey. The organization set out to educate Ottawa on homosexuality through group discussions, publications, and public speaking. They worked to support the gay community through social events, counseling, a drop-in centre, and a crisis line. The group took political action not only on issues at the local level, but on a provincial and national scale, partially fueled by their location in the capital of Canada. Their work served both the Anglophone and Francophone communities. The membership and board was largely male throughout the 1970’s before writing gender parity on the board of directors into the constitution in 1983. On June 27, 1989 the name Gays of Ottawa was changed to the Association of Lesbians and Gays of Ottawa (ALGO).
Scope and Content
The fond consists predominantly of correspondence, reports, newsletters, minutes of meetings and other documentation relating to the history of the Gays of Ottawa during 1971-1986. The materials reflect the political action under taken by the organization on a local and national level. Materials also include those of the National Gay Rights Coalition (NGRC) of which Gays of Ottawa served as the national coordinating office during the mid 1970’s. Gays of Ottawa’s involvement with the Coalition for Gay Rights in Ontario (CGRO) is also shown through the number of documents held relating to the provincial group.

History / Biographical
Khush: South Asian Gay Men of Toronto was founded in 1987. The group was first named South Asian Gay Association (SAGA) and was changed to Khush as they extended their membership to include both men and women. In 1989, Khush founded ‘Khush Khayal’, the first South Asian gay newsletter in Canada that was distributed nationally and internationally. They also produced a monthly community calendar of events called ‘Chhota Khayal’ that ran until 1993 and ‘Avec Pyar’, a quarterly zine, in 1996. Khush was a founding member of the South Asian Inter-agency Network which is now the Coalition of Agencies Serving South Asians (CASSA), an advocacy group aimed at improving social services for South Asians in Toronto. Khush also founded the South Asian AIDS Coalition (Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention) which was the first initiative in Canada to address HIV/AIDS issues in South Asian communities. In 1993, Khush founded ‘Ahimsa’ – South Asian Men Against Violence (against women and children) in collaboration with the Coalition of Agencies Serving South Asians (CASSA). The organization ran a variety of queer South Asian community events such as ‘Salaam! Toronto’, a programme that celebrated diasporic South Asian gay and lesbian cultures and identities in 1989, ‘Desh Pardesh’, an annual festival that highlighted the art, culture, and politics of diasporic South Asians in the West which first began in 1990, and ‘Discovery ‘93’, the first International South Asian Gay Men’s Conference. In 1997, Khush changed its subtitle to ‘Queer South Asians’ to be more inclusive of all sexualities and reflect its diverse membership. (See Appendix A in Finding Aid for history of Khush)
