BOOKLAUNCH: The Canadian War on Queers
by Gary Kinsman & Patrizia Gentile

Tuesday, February 8 ยท 7:00pm - 10:00pm
Venus Envy, 1598 Barrington Street

From the 1950s to the late 1990s, agents of the state spied on, interrogated, and harassed gays and lesbians in Canada as 'threats' to society and 'enemies' of the state. Reconstructed from official security regime documents and interviews with gays, lesbians, civil servants, members of the military, and high-ranking officials, The Canadian War on Queers offers a passionate, personalized account of a national security campaign that violated the rights of thousands of people. Gary Kinsman and Patrizia Gentile disclose not only the acts of state repression that accompanied the Canadian war on queers but also the forms of resistance it provoked that raise profound questions about just whose security was being protected and about the ideology of national security itself.
