Canadian LGBT History
A free wikibook for students, allies and activists
Welcome to the Canadian LGBT History wikibook!

This is the Canadian LGBT History wikibook. The goal of this wikibook is to provide free information about the social, legal and political history of Canada's LGBT communities and people. This wikibook aims to be inclusive and well-researched, which means we will be using as many primary sources and credible secondary sources as possible. It is intended for older students who wish to learn about the history of LGBT rights, lifestyles and communities in Canada. Feel free to contribute!
