24 Nov A fruitful collaboration
On the Quebec Gay Archives website, you may have noticed a short stop-motion film titled Parade. This work by Jean-Pierre Fortin is his second collaboration with the Quebec Gay Archives.
The originality of this short film stems from the way it showcases little known objects from our collections, such as pins, matches, condoms, etc. In less than 30 minutes, we can see them pass by in neat ranks. In addition to displaying the diversity of our collections, this short is very playful and interesting.
Jean-Pierre Fortin took it upon himself to support the Archives’ mission by creating photographic and video works that illustrate the memories of LGBTQ2S+ communities in Quebec, all by using our collections. With Parade, we can see that his endeavour was successful.
