*As part of Toronto Cocktail Conference for the month of August we are hosting a series of webinars taking place every Tuesday at 8pm EST.*
This virtual walking tour of Toronto’s lost and forgotten gay bars will explore all the mid-century drag balls and glory holes along Yonge, Dundas, Queen and King streets. Although the history of these bars isn’t widely known, they were sites of refuge and resistance for many trying to navigate the dangers of being queer in postwar Canada. They also helped the community build a network that would wind up staging a significant protest in Toronto over police brutality in 1981.
