Écomusée du fier monde
presents:

Fugues se Souvient:
30 Years of Homosexualtiy in Quebec

Adults $8:00, Student, Senior & Child $6.00

A testimony to the evolution of the GLBT community within Quebecois society, the exhibition Fugues se souvient covers notable moments from the last thirty years.

Against a backdrop of almost 400 magazine covers, the visitor will traverse pivotal stages of social change by encountering themes that include HIV/AIDS, the recognition of same sex couples, the birth and evolution of the Village, the pink economy, gender identity, male aesthetics, etc. From marginality to equality, Fugues remembers.

Founded in 1980 and incorporated in 1982, the Écomusée du fier monde is both a Montréal working class and industrial history museum and a community museum. Recognized and supported by the ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec and by the Conseil des arts de Montréal, the Écomusée emphasizes the history and heritage of the Centre-Sud in Montréal. As a microcosm of the Industrial Revolution in Québec in the second half of the 19th century, this neighbourhood witnessed firsthand the impact of industry on labour as well as on the living conditions of working class families.

The Écomusée du fier monde develops its museum practice based on popular education and establishes participatory projects in close collaboration with the neighbourhood’s citizens, institutions and organizations. Furthermore, it is engaged in the issues that concern present and future development of its surroundings.
