07 Nov A moving evening
On October 16th, the Archives gaies du Québec held a small evening at their offices to celebrate the donation of André Landry’s photograph, Je m’ouvre au matin comme l’éveil / Et pourtant j’ai le regard figé sur la fin. The artwork in question depicts André Landry and his partner Alain, a few months before the latter’s death from complications of HIV/AIDS. A few members of the AGQ were there for the event, as well as four friends of André and Alain, who often met at their apartment in the Village in the early 90s. A very moving reunion.
For more details on the photograph, we invite you to read Bernard Mulaire’s article in the Archigai, no. 31, p. 5.
