Main Street Ontario: Thunder Bay

Main Street Ontario

In 1970 Fort Williams and Port Arthur amalgamated into Thunder Bay, creating the largest city in Northwestern Ontario. Isolated from surrounding cities, an underground queer community found refuge at the Ukrainian Labour Temple, sharing meals with their chosen family. With courage and resilience, they launched the first Thunder Pride, bringing together friends and family in a celebration of love and acceptance.
