This weekend’s weekend video features Toronto activist and singer Faith Nolan, with a rousing song about Viola Desmond. I found out about Faith’s connections with Nova Scotia while reading Before the Parade, a great book by Rebecca Rose about LGBTQ activism in Halifax in the seventies and early eighties. Watch the video and buy the book!

This weekend’s weekend video is a trailer for The Fruit Machine, a documentary about the hysterical witch hunt of gay civil servants here in Canada that continued well into the 1990s. The documentary will be screened in Halifax on Thursday Dec. 5
