Many organizations have and do exist in Edmonton that have served or worked with the city’s LGBTQ community. Some organizations are national and international in their scope and membership, while others are local or provincial. Many of these organizations produced information pamphlets, newsletters and brochures, which were made available for interested persons to access at places like the GATE office, and later the Gay and Lesbian Community Centre and the Edmonton Pride Centre office. The range of interests and foci represented by these organizations is vast, from the very specific to the broad (for example the Northern Titans Bowling Tournament to organized religious bodies such as the United Church of Canada). There are numerous files of information gathered from AIDS organizations across Canada and internationally, as well as files relating to other varied organizations, both extant and extinct.
Scope and content
This series consists of the records of an array of organizations, and have been arranged in the following broad geographical sub-series: Organizations – Alberta; Alberta – Edmonton; Alberta - Calgary; British Columbia; Manitoba; Maritimes; Ontario; Quebec; Saskatchewan; Australia; Europe; and the U.S.A.
Within these geographical headings, the files are arranged alphabetically by file title (this often being the title of the specific organization represented). The records consist primarily of published brochures or newsletters and an assortment of printed information including news clippings, articles, news releases, and general correspondence. While some files have a lot of information, others are skimpy in their content. However, the range of organizations represented in this series, and the span of years captured, provides valuable insight into the rich diversity of the LGBTQ community during this time period.
