Queer History Tours

The people, places and moments that have shaped Edmonton's queer history

To celebrate Pride Month, The Edmonton Queer History Project, with the support of Edmonton Downtown Business Association and the City of Edmonton, are pleased to offer walking AND ETS bus tours of Downtown’s queer history

Join us on these special tours as we explore the people, places, and moments that have helped to define Edmonton’s queer history. All tours are free, include a complementary printed map, and are hosted by members of the Edmonton Queer History Project Team. Each guided tour runs approximately 90 minutes in length, begins at Michael Phair Park (10124 104 St NW), and takes place in the downtown core. We are pleased to provide American Sign Language interpretation as part of each tour.
