History / Biographical
The AIDS Committee of Toronto, a community-based AIDS activist organization and Ontario’s first AIDS service organization, was formally established July 12, 1983. Amid media hysteria, misinformation, homophobia and confusion, the Toronto-based groups, Gays in Health Care and the Hassle Free Clinic, organized a public forum on April 5, 1983 to discuss AIDS and Hepatitis B at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute of Technology. This event was attended by over 300 people, including members of The Body Politic, Red Cross workers, social workers, doctors and archivists, who put forward a proposal to establish a standing AIDS Committee. In response to Toronto’s first AIDS diagnosis 1982, the need for an organization that provided the public with up-to-date information and resources, support services and and advice regarding the virus, quickly became apparent. Following the initial public forum, a series of meetings were held at the 519 Church Street Community Centre, which led to the establishment of the AIDS Committee of Toronto and its 5 working groups: Medical Liaison, AIDSupport, Fundraising and Special Events and Community Education. On June 9, ACT was successful in its bid to get the Canada Ontario Development Project grant of $62,000 which allowed it to hire 6 people for a period of 6 months. On July 12, ACT elected 10 people to their 12 member Executive Committee. A press conference was held on July 19 to officially announce the establishment of the AIDS Committee of Toronto. In its infancy, ACT worked out of the Hassle Free Clinic, which was followed by their move to an office located at 66 Wellesley Street E. On October 4, 1983, ACT was legally incorporated in the Province of Ontario as a non-profit charitable organization. In its early days, ACT fostered a ‘bottom-up’ approach to health care and sought to mobilize the gay community. It had a small number of staff who coordinated the volunteer-based working groups whose members were elected as Board of Directors. As service demands grew quickly, ACT began to shift towards becoming a more structured organization, through the establishment of policies, procedures and a screening process for volunteers. ACT’s activities centred around HIV prevention through sexual health education and providing support services for people living with and at risk for HIV/AIDS. The education campaigns and programs were initiated through forums, discussion groups, conferences and speaking engagements. On July 4, 1984, ACT organized the first AIDS Awareness Week which would later become a provincial and national event. The event was composed of panel discussions, benefits and press conferences. Education efforts also extended to brochure and poster projects, which were circulated to targeted communities and reproduced by external groups. ACT’s first brochure was “This Is a Test” which provided information on HIV antibody testing. On September 3 1985, ACT’s film “No Sad Songs” premiered. The film was directed by Nick Sheehan, profiling Jim Black, a man living with AIDS and the gay community’s response to AIDS. In addition to education, the organization offered support services that were geared towards people worried about HIV/AIDS, people living with HIV, AIDS, ARC and PLS and their loved ones. A range of services were offered through programs such as the Buddy Program, Financial Assistance Program, Practical Assistance Program, Bereavement Program, the ACT Hotline and the Volunteer Counselling Services. These programs offered financial, practical and emotional support and assistance. In 1986, ACT announced plans to open North America’s first AIDS hospice. The hospice project resulted in the establishment of Casey House in 1988, which has since then operated independently. ACT advocated for government action in response to the AIDS epidemic on the municipal, provincial and federal levels. It sat on various government committees and submitted briefs and reports on a variety of issues. When the HIV antibody test became available in Canada, ACT advocated for anonymous testing to reduce barriers to testing and stigma associated with HIV//AIDS. In 1993, ACT moved to 399 Church Street. This location housed ACT’s Access Centre which operated a small circulating library collection, reference material and free up to date information on HIV/AIDS, which was made available for the public. In the early 1990s, ACT underwent restructuring as many community members felt that the organization had become burdened by bureaucracy. In addition to its educational and support-based projects and campaigns, ACT organized other community events, such as the first AIDS Vigil, held in 1985. Fundraising events were also introduced. The AIDS Walk Toronto was an annual event started in 1988 in which community-based organizations participated to raise awareness and funds for AIDS,and to promote education and support services. Fashion Cares was an annual Gala fundraiser, which included fashion shows, auctions, banquets, and after shows. This annual gala aimed to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and funds for ACT in partnership with local and national designers, celebrities and businesses. The Fashion Cares Gala was held in 1987 at the Sherbourne Street Diamond Nightclub. September 9, 2012 marked the final Fashion Cares event, which was held at the Sony Centre.

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
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

History / Biographical
Egale Canada was founded in 1986 by political lobbyist, Les McAfee. Formerly referred to as, Equality for Gays and Lesbians Everywhere, Egale’s initial mission centered around lobbying the Canadian Federal Government to extend prohibited grounds of discrimination to include sexual orientation under section 3 (1) of the Canadian Human Rights Act. During its early years, the organization consisted of a small group of members based out of Ottawa. Over time, Egale’s main office relocated to Toronto, and its mandate moved beyond its initial focus on the Canadian Human Rights Act, extending to include public education, advocacy, litigation and expert consultations on various LGBTQ+ issues. Egale’s mission is to work towards a Canada free of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and all other forms of discrimination. In 1991, Les McAfee passed away as a result of an AIDS-related illness. Soon after, Egale underwent a consultative process to rebuild and restructure the organization. By 1993, bylaws were adopted by the organization's members. In 1995, Egale was incorporated as a federal not-for-profit organization and hired an Executive Director. Its Executive Directors have included: John Fisher, Gilles Marchildon, Kaj Hasselriis and Helen Kennedy. The organization elects its Board of Directors from 6 regions in Canada including: British Columbia & the Yukon, the Prairies, Northwest Territories & Nunavut, the National Capital Region, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada. In 2001, Egale members voted in favour of changing the organization's name to Egale Canada, to to expand and reflect a more inclusive mandate. As of 2018, Egale had 3,300 members from across Canada. Egale’s efforts to extend equal rights and protections to LGBTQ+ Canadians, has manifested through political advocacy, legal interventions, public education and research. On a political front, Egale has been involved in the legislative process through providing submissions and testimony to various Federal Parliamentary Committees. These efforts have dealt with a variety of issues, including immigration, spousal benefits, hate crimes, hate propaganda, solicitation laws, marriage equality and the Canadian Human Rights Act. In addition, the organization has also made lobbying material and guides available to its members, through programs such as the Adopt an MP Program, its postcard and letter writing campaigns. In 2003, Egale played an instrumental role in the formation of the Canadians for Equal Marriage campaign. CEM was as a multi-partisan national advocacy campaign organized to ensure the passage of federal legislation legalizing same-sex marriage. Although the campaign was legally and structurally independent from Egale, a cooperative agreement was made between the two organizations that stipulated that, with the legalization of same-sex marriage, CEM would disband and Egale would be entitled to its assets. On a legal front, Egale has acted as an intervenor in a number of landmark cases that have gone before the lower courts and the Supreme Court of Canada. Interventions have included cases dealing with extradition, spousal benefits, the freedom of expression and religion, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, same-sex marriage challenges and more. These cases include, but are not limited to: Egan v. Canada, Mossop v. Canada, Vriend v. Alberta, M v. H, Little Sister’s Book and Art Emporium v. Canada Customs, Chamberlain v. Surrey School Board, British Columbia Marriage Challenge and the British Columbia College of Teachers v. Trinity Western University. The organization’s research efforts have included the preparation and release of briefs, fact sheets, and discussion papers on a number of legal, social and political issues. Consultations and surveys were also conducted by Egale to identify and assess the needs of LGBTQ+ Canadians. In 2003, Egale published Outlaws & Inlaws - Your Guide to LGBT rights, same-sex relationships and Canadian law, which was managed under Egale’s companion charitable organization, the Egale Canada Human Rights Trust. This Infokit provided information regarding the extension of benefits to same sex partners, as a result of legislative changes in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Outlaws & Inlaws included information on employment benefits, taxation, pension coverage, employment law and health insurance. In addition to its legal and political work, Egale has coordinated and organized various workshops and conferences. In 2003, Egale organized the national conference Rainbow Visions which hosted in Montreal. Attendees from across the country came together to discuss LGBTQ+ issues. Egale has had representatives attend and address the plenary session of the the United Nations World Conference on Human Rights in Vienna in 1993. The organization also sent representatives to the UN World Conference Against Racism and the 2000 UN Conference on Women. Egale was accredited as an Official Partner for the Canada Committee for the International Year of the Family Conference.

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.
