31 Mar Frank W. Remiggi Award
As part of the AGQ’s 40th anniversary celebrations, the Frank W. Remiggi award was created to honour the memory of this generous benefactor. The prize will be awarded in August 2023 to a researcher whose work was strongly inspired by the Archives gaies du Québec’s collections.
Frank W. Remiggi was born in Montreal in 1951. After obtaining a doctorate in geography at McGill University, he became a professor at UQÀM. His field of research focused on interethnic relations in geography. Alongside Irène Demczuk, he published Sortir de l’ombre. Histoire des communautés lesbienne et gaie de Montréal. He passed away in Montreal in 2018.
The Archives gaies du Québec have in their holdings some of his archives.
