January 2023

For a period of six months, beginning February 1st 2023, the Archives gaies du Québec will place a moratorium on acquisitions.

This pause will be an opportunity for our team to evaluate the remaining space in our offices as well as review our procedures, in order to better accept future donations.

You can still contact us if you wish to make an archival material donation to the AGQ. We will take note of your offer and contact you after August 1st, 2023.

In spite of the post-pandemic inflationary surge, our 2022 fundraising campaign was a success. We have accumulated over $40,000.

We are very grateful for all this thanks to your generosity.

The endpoint of this campaign took place on January 16th, when we drew the name for the fundraiser raffle. Maria Remiggi won the photograph generously donated by Robert Laliberté.

The draw took place online, in the presence of Yves Lafontaine, director of Fugues magazine, Jacques Prince, president of the Archives gaies du Québec, Pierre Pilotte, coordinator of the Archives gaies du Québec, and Jonathan Proulx-Guimond, coordination and communications assistant.

We want to extend our warmest thanks to all of our donators and Robert Laliberté.

And our congratulations to Maria Remiggi!
