History of LGBT+ Rights in Canada

June 24, 2019 @ 10:00 am

June is designated Pride Month in commemoration of the Stonewall Riots of 1969. The history of LGBT+ Rights is long, and sadly full of hardship and prejudice. Even today, members find themselves prosecuted around the world. The LGBT+ Rights movement has come a long way in the last century, and while there is still a ways to go, it can't be denied how far the community and its supporters have come in bringing equality and acceptance. In this episode of Pan Historia, Lyndsay and Jonah look into and discuss LGBT+ Rights in Canada, from the First Nations and colonial era, to Post-Confederation, to the Canadian Human Rights Act, and finally to the Civil Marriage Act.

Happy Pride!
