Institutionele geschiedenis

In May of 1980, writes Rick Hurlbut, a group of gay men met to discuss the need for organized recreation opportunities for gay men and women in Edmonton. (See Box 15, folder 2) The group began by organizing some pick-up baseball games followed by social gatherings, and named their club the ‘Edmonton Roughnecks Recreation Association’ (ERRA). At the end of that first season, the Roughnecks participated in a city fastball tournament celebrating Alberta’s 75th Anniversary. The Club was incorporated in February, 1981, and went on to offer sporting leagues for volleyball (introduced in the winter of 1980-81) and Gymnastics (only ran for one season, ca. 1982). The Club trained for and participated in several local, national, and international sporting tournaments, and also entered teams in the Gay Games. Their newsletter was eventually spun off into an independent, and Edmonton’s first gay newspaper, called Fine Print. ERRA appears to have folded ca. 1987; a TEAM Edmonton Gay and Sports Association was active in the 1990’s, and then re-establishes in 2006, with the shared purpose of providing sports and recreation options for Edmonton’s LGBTQ community. A wide variety of LGBQT sports options are available in Edmonton today.
