Without you, there is no history.

We at the Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity have created the Our History Initiative to spread awareness about the history of Canada’s 2SLGBTQIA+ community.

We are partnering with schools and organizations across Canada to produce exhibits that feature Canada’s 2SLGBTQIA+ artists and activists, and the matters that affect and inspire the community. These individuals and organizations have played an important part in paving a road to a more inclusive and diverse Canada. And their stories need to be told for future generations to learn from and to continue in their path.

Each exhibit below comes complete with a downloadable pdf of the artwork and a playbook that outlines how to display the exhibit in your space. If you would like to be notified when we post new exhibits, please register to receive updates here. 

Every member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community has a story to tell. And we’ve created this platform for you to tell it and mark your place in history. If you would like to tell your story through an exhibition, click here to submit.
