Welcome to our special podcast series about the historic legal battle that secured equality rights for 2SLGBTQI+ Canadians
Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF) and the Edmonton Queer History Project (EQHP) are proud to announce the launch of a new 10-part history series entitled Vriend Versus Alberta, for Pride Month.
Vriend Versus Alberta is the most extensive and expansive first-person account ever produced about the pivotal legal battle over human rights that changed Canada.
Written and directed by award-winning queer historian Darrin Hagen, and produced by ECF and a the EQHP, this podcast series features more than a dozen in-depth interviews. In this series, listeners are invited behind the scenes as the legal team of Sheila Greckol and Doug Stollery, working closely with academics, activists, politicians and the 2SLGBTQI+ community of Edmonton, set out to change the way the Government of Alberta treats its 2SLGBTQI+ citizens.
