The Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity is proud to be a member of the Canadian Museum Association’s Advisory Committee to create Canada’s first: ‘Introduction to LGBTQ2+ Inclusion in Canadian Museums’ draft.
This document will help us help launch a series of inclusive strategies to help guide cultural institutions across Canada on how to engage, reflect, and celebrate diverse Canadian communities.
The spark for this project came into being after several museums approached the CMA and LGBTQ2+ organizations for ways to build stronger community relationships with LGBTQ2+ communities and guidance on representing their stories. A session was held at our Ottawa National Conference last April and a Committee was established.
Inspired by the American Alliance of Museums’ LGBTQ Alliance and its initiatives, such as the LGBTQ Welcoming Guidelines.
