HIS395 Video Project by Alessandra Salvati

Elspeth Brown on her LGBQT2+ Oral History class at the University of Toronto-Mississauga. The class, which focused on queer oral history method and production, had students create a short digital story based on a significant historical event from Toronto’s queer community. Professor Brown wanted me to send you along this information so that you could add it to the Collaboratory social media.

This project focuses on the Bathhouse Raids in 1981, where 4 gay bathhouses were subjected to a series of coordinated raids, 286 men were charged, and a series of protests ensued.
