Lanark County Pride
50 years ago there were a series of riots at the Stonewall Inn in New York City. They are widely considered to constitute the most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in Canada are some of the most advanced in the Americas and in the world. Same-sex sexual activity has been lawful in Canada since June 27, 1969, when the Criminal Law Amendment Act (also known as Bill C-150) came into force upon royal assent. We are celebrating both these major events in our history. Come celebrate with us! Stay tuned as we update our activities.
