Canadian Queer Hall of Fame Inducted


The first five inductees of the new Canadian Queer Hall of Fame -- including drag court founder and fund-raiser Ted Northe (pictured) -- will be recognized during an inaugural ceremony in Vancouver this Saturday.

Other Canadians being inducted into the hall of fame, according to the Vancouver Courier, include the late former prime minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, who was straight. He is being recognized for his work to decriminalize homosexuality in Canada 40 years ago. Also being inducted are Mark Tewksbury, the Olympic gold medalist swimmer who established the World OUT Games; Little Sister's bookstore manager and author Janine Fuller, who fought censorship laws; and Robert Kaiser, an HIV/AIDS volunteer and fund-raiser.

No permanent home has been found yet for the Canadian Queer Hall of Fame.
