Historia administrativa

The Gay Alliance Toward Equality (GATE) formed ca. 1971-1972, originated as a University of Alberta student and faculty group lobbying to change laws discriminating against homosexuals. They were established as part of a wave of like groups across the continent responding to moves by the Canadian and American government to decriminalize homosexuality. Early GATE organizers were Michael Roberts, Bob Emery, Bill Booth, Tom Hutchinson, and M.A. Mumert. Incorporated under the Societies Act of Alberta in August, 1977, GATE’s first constitution was approved in 1978.
GATE offices moved from the campus area to a downtown location in the late 1970’s, distancing the organization both physically and philosophically from a purely university activist organization into one more representative of the general gay community in Edmonton. The emphasis was now on social service to the gay community, including operating as a drop-in centre; hosting a Speakers’ Bureau; offering a phone-in line for information as well as a peer-counseling program; establishing a library; and planning social outings.
Additionally, GATE continued to advocate for civil rights for gays and lesbians and served as a communications hub for members of Edmonton’s gay community. They also took part in national issues and organizations and some reorganization of the Executive was required by the mid-1980’s to facilitate the growth of the organization and the increase in types of activities. GATE’s activities were supported by funds generated by social events, contributions and an annual membership fee. However, due to financial mis-management and poor record keeping, GATE lost its Societies Act registration in 1986. A reapplication was made in 1987, but a new name had to be created as a condition for regaining their status. This was accomplished, and on November 4, 1987 GATE’s name was incorporated as the Gay and Lesbian Community Centre of Edmonton (GLCCE). (See Series 4.)
