Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Stewart, Mairead
Abstract:

This project challenges the marginalization and misrepresentation of the 2SLGBTQ+ community in traditional archives and research endeavours by empowering queer Toronto arts-based activists to archive their own stories and experiences. This was achieved through co-creation workshops with queer artist/activists with the goal of creating an audio archive inspired by themes and topics collectively chosen by the participants. These counter-archiving practices are particularly powerful in the queer community because they build a sense of shared identity and history, fostering pride and strength in participants and community members.
