We speak to Gary Kinsman about the Canadian state’s relationship to the LGBTQ2+ community in Canada. In particular, we discuss the historical state-issued violence doing towards the queer and trans communities. Nearing the end of our discussion, Gary gives a few resources for those who want to learn more about the LGBTQ2+ history in Canada and for those who are seeking reparation: For those LGBTQ2+ people in the Canadian Armed Forces who are seeking apology and reparation for being purged. To learn more about the regulation of sexuality by the Canadian state, check out Gary and Patrizia Gentile's book, The Canadian War on Queers: National Security as Sexual Regulation. For more of Gary, check out his website, Radical Noise. To contact Gary, email him at gkinsman(at)laurentian(dot)ca. To find LGBTQ2+ resources in BC, check out What's On Queer BC.
