It includes an article on campaign for an amendment to the Newfoundland and Labrador Human Rights Code to include protection on basis of sexual orientation. They conducted a survey of experiences of discrimination to be presented to the House of Assembly and Human Rights Commission. It also includes an article celebrating the connection between pride events and revolt and rebellion "in the spirit of Stonewall." GALT was preparing for St. John's Lesbian and Gay Pride Day 1991 when this issue was published. It includes an article on celebrating lesbian motherhood, written by a single lesbian parent, Debbie N. Article, on speaking up about AIDS in the gay community in Newfoundland, and furthering education about AIDS generally. It also includes an article from Robin A.
