James

James talks about the psychological build up around coming out and his current work helping to promote queer artists as role models.
James was part of the collective of artists that produced the Nuit Rose art show during World Pride in Toronto, 2014. He also produces 10 x 10, a show of photography that celebrates queers in the arts. More about James can be found at:www.jamesfowlerart.com/

James’s story is one in a series recorded at World Pride in Toronto, Ontario in 2014. Heart felt thanks go to the sponsors of this series: Media Net in Victoria, BC and Trinity Square Video in Toronto. Special thanks to Milada Kovacova at Trinity.

Lesbian News 03

Inspired by the long time editor of Lesbian News, Barbara McLauchlin, whose onmyplanet.ca video story is here, and courtesy of the stupendous personal library of Lahl, I have begun posting .pdf files from a few years of Lesbian News, Victoria’s Monthly Lesbian Feminist Newsletter – later named The Lavender Rhinoceros. I will periodically post more scanned / pdf issues of this local Victoria Lesbian Magazine.
This issue of Lesbian News, is from March of 1993, editing and production by Corinne M Devison, Joan Garcia, Diana Gault, Sally Hamill, Barbara McLauchlin, Karey Perks, Ramona Scott, Lorey Simpson and Debby Yaffe. This particular issue is titled ‘Elle News’, but has the same look and content and is produced by a similar crew.

There are two versions below, Small is a 2 MB file and Full is 13 MB. These links will open the .pdf file in a new window of your browser, from there they are downloadable.
