Canada’s 2SLGBTQIA+ History.

Canada is a young country with a rich history. But what if we told you that every Canadian history book that you’ve ever read has been incomplete? The reason that so many conversations about Canadian history are incomplete is that they typically don’t include – or even acknowledge – the history of queer and trans people in Canada.

The goal of this book is to help change that. These stories aren’t secret, but for almost as long as this country has existed, Canada’s 2SLGBTQIA+ experience has remained largely untold in the broader context of our country’s history.

Below you’ll find the first edition of the Our History book. You can download this book and use it as a study guide to help spread these remarkable stories. And if you’re interested in finding out how much you know about Canada’s queer & trans history, we’ve also created a quiz! Take it now or after you read the book!
