Open House 2016

Our doors are always open, and we look forward to opening them extra wide on May 14 (actually starting May 13).

Schedule of activities (draft!)

Film: Open Secrets "This provocative documentary uncovers a lost chapter in Canadian military history: how the Armed Forces dealt with homosexual behaviour among soldiers, during and after World War II. More than 60 years later, a group of five veterans, barely adults when they enlisted, break the silence to talk about how homosexual behaviour "was even more unmentionable than cancer." (...) Based on the book Courting Homosexuals in the Military by Paul Jackson."
