In 1990 police attacked the Sexgarage party in Montreal’s warehouse district. In retrospect, the subsequent political mobilization looks like the "coming out" of queer politics in Montreal, and as such is commemorated every year in that city’s LGBTA march, "Divers/Cité". This short pamphlet looks at the context and previous political mobilizations which laid the basis for people feeling empowered to fight back against police violence—the Mohawk Nation's conflict with the Canadian state, the AIDS activist movement, and previous responses to homophobic violence in Montreal. A previous version of this text appeared on my blog, Sketchy Thoughts.
