The Ottawa Senior Pride Network is interviewing a variety of LGBT* seniors on video so that our history isn’t lost. These pioneers and everyday heroes lived through a time when they were considered criminals, sinners, and mentally ill. That discrimination and lack of human rights have had a profound effect – each has a unique perspective to share.
Before the memories are lost, we hope to interview many more. That’s where you come in — we need financial support to continue this important project.
