12 Alexander Street, Toronto, Ontario M4Y 1B4
From the earliest pioneers to the parades, pride and politics of the contemporary era, ANY OTHER WAY draws on a range of voices to explore how the residents of queer Toronto have shaped and reshaped one of the world’s most diverse cities.

In partnership with Buddies In Bad Times Theatre, one of Toronto's queer cultural hubs, and IFOA: International Festival of Authors/Toronto Lit Up, we'll be launching ANY OTHER WAY with readings, a film screening, a raffle with all proceeds going to the Canadian Lesbian & Gay Archives (CLGA), and of course, a dance party.

ANY OTHER WAY includes chapters on: Oscar Wilde’s trip to Toronto; early cruising areas and gay/lesbian bars; queer shared houses; a pioneering collective trans archive project; bath house raids; LBGT-police conflicts; the Queen Street art/music/activist scene; Black Lives Matter's full stop of the 2016 Pride parade; and a profile of Jackie Shane, the gay R&B singer who performed in drag in both Toronto and Los Angeles, and gained international fame with his 1962 chart-topping single, ‘Any Other Way.’
