From Purge to Pride – LGBTQ2+ in the Federal Public Service

Jodi LeBlanc Community Leader Nov 21, 2019

The Canada School of Public Service hosted a learning event on November 18th called "From Purge to Pride – LGBTQ2+ in the Federal Public Service". I am going to try to view the on-demand video as well as watch the critically acclaimed documentary, “The Fruit Machine,” that they reference.

"The event provides an opportunity to gain insight and knowledge about the LGBT purge, a difficult chapter in Canada's history—when the Government of Canada viewed homosexuality as grounds for surveillance and interrogation, and federal employees and members of the Canadian Armed Forces were investigated.

As part of its LGBT purge, the military fired Michelle Douglas in 1989, despite her exemplary service record. The documentary, The Fruit Machine, by filmmaker Sarah Fodey, tells Michelle's story, along with those of many others."
