Title

GAIN Foresight February 1986

Description

Monthly newsletter for GAIN members. It announces that a telephone line will operate out of Wally Upward’s house, the opening of a new gay bar, Pricella’s, and efforts to have sexual orientation added as prohibited grounds of discrimination to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and Newfoundland Human Rights Code. It states that GAIN wanted to have more activities outside bars to get people who didn’t like the bar scene more involved. It contains updates on the spread of AIDS in Canada and the U.S. and the latest science on the disease, gay news updates from the United States and Europe, and a reprinted article from Saskatoon magazine Perceptions on the oppression of gay men in Nazi Germany. It also includes a section of comedic dialogue, “Sunday Dinner at Mom’s”.
