Don't Miss 'Pushing Buttons'!
William Craddock's intensely satisfying Pin Button Project highlights the CLGA's vast collection of buttons and pins from the history of LGBTQ activism in Toronto and beyond. Don't miss out on the fun! Images from the Project are now on display in the CLGA's exhibition room at 34 Isabella, until October 22nd. Or, you can visit the Project online at www.clga.ca/thepinbuttonproject.
Why celebrate the pin button? This easily produced, cheaply made objet d'art can draw attention to a political cause, announce a personal allegiance, or simply evoke a reaction with a quick glance. You can read more about Will Craddock and the Pin Button Project on the Torontoist.com blog or the Embrace Disruption blog. Xtra! has also profiled the exhibition and project in its September 28th issue.
And don't forget to adopt your own button! Check out the buttons just waiting for adoption here.
The project is sponsored by the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies, Xtra! and the Community One Foundation.
