Help  Commemorate Calgary’s LGBTQ2S+ Legacy

Calgary Needs YOUR STORY × SHARE IT WITH US

 

Calgary’s LGBTQ2S+ history is long and storied but largely invisible within the city’s public realm. We’re changing this by creating a LGBTQ2S+ commemoration in Calgary. 

To make it a success we need your help to identify the pivotal places, memories, stories, and spaces of Calgary’s LGBTQ2S+ community. 

Help create a LGBTQ2S+ commemoration in YYC that reflects YOUR experience.

THEN WHAT?

What will we do with your stories?

1) Review them for the places in Calgary’s landscape that resonate with the LGBTQ2S+ community. 

2) Identify the themes in the stories that matter to members of Calgary’s LGBTQ2S+ community.  

3) Use the locations and themes to guide the physical creation of a commemoration to Calgary’s LGBTQ2S+ community. (Stay tuned for more consultation!)

4) Create a living map that documents the places, spaces, and stories of Calgary’s LGBTQ2S+ community that can be accessed by anyone, anywhere.
