This authoritative reference guide is a continuation of Lesbian and Gay Liberation in Canada: A Selected Annotated Chronology, 1964–1975 (https://tspace.library.utoronto.ca/handle/1807/4397). It starts where the first volume left off, and highlights some of the seminal events and people involved in the fight for gay rights in Canada to the end of 1981. Each entry in the chronology is combined with a brief bibliography of sources. Coverage is selective and focuses on self-declared lesbians and gay men and their activities in regard to the forging of lesbian and gay communities and liberation in Canada. Special attention has been given to important demonstrations, political action and lobbying, and legal reform. In addition, artistic and cultural contributions with significant lesbian or gay content are included, such as books, dramatic productions, and films. Three appendices provide supplementary information on lesbian and gay organizations, periodicals, and bars and clubs.
