Michelle Lavoie: Digital Heritage Experiences Grant Recipient 2020

Michelle Lavoie: Edmonton Queer History Interactive Map and Website (2020 Digital Heritage Experiences Grant Amount: $10,000)

This project will result in an interactive multimedia website that draws on archival research (from the Edmonton Queer History Project and The City of Edmonton Archives), and oral history (from LGBTIQ+ seniors and knowledge holders) to present LGBTIQ+ community stories and tales about people, events, and places that shaped Edmonton’s queer past. This website aims to celebrate Edmonton’s LGBTIQ+ history to promote and support LGBTIQ+ intergenerational and public dialogue through audio, videotaped and written stories, archival texts and photographs, and community artwork.
