Queer Here, Queer There is the podcast mini-series that delves into everything that is queer space. Bathhouses? We got that. Cruising grounds? We got that too! Never heard of either of these? Don't worry. Each episode will look at queer spaces through a different lens, starting with a history of Montreal's queer spaces, this mini-series will investigate a range of topics from the future of queer spaces and how Grindr has changed the queer landscape to why queer people face disproportionate amounts of loneliness. Hosted by Noah Powers, a research fellow at the Samuel Centre for Social Connectedness and recent McGill University graduate, this podcast aims to connect younger queer people to the history and importance of queer spaces in Canada. Queer Here, Queer There would like to acknowledge TakingitGlobal, the Government of Canada, and Canada Services Corps for their support of this podcast through a #RisingYouth community service grant.

    Episode 4: Queer Heritage - Something Worth Saving?

    EPISODE SUMMARY
    In the last episode of Queer Here, Queer There, Noah uncovers the messy world of heritage preservation and who determines what gets to be saved. David Rayside, the former director of the Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto, and Ken Lustbader, the co-director of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project contribute decades of activist knowledge to the conversation.

    EPISODE NOTES
    Thank you again to David and Ken for contributing their insight and experience to this episode, it was a pleasure speaking with them!
    As part of my fellowship this summer, I wrote a policy brief that addresses the HSMBC's shortcomings when it comes to historic preservation of queer heritage, you can check it out on the SCSC website here.

    Episode 1: History of Montreal's Queer Spaces

    Episode 1: History of Montreal's Queer Spaces

    EPISODE SUMMARY
    For the first episode of Queer Here, Queer There, Noah dives into the history of queer spaces in Montreal. Tune in for the stories of how parks have played a vital role in Montreal's queer scene, of Montreal's two Stonewall-esque moments, and of the evolution of Montreal's three gay villages.

    EPISODE NOTES
    Queer spaces do not have a widely accepted definition, but most consider queer spaces to be places where queer people are accepted, safety and security is at least somewhat ensured, and they act as sites of community building and social interactions amongst queer people.
