Join us Thursday, June 2 for a screening and public talk about The Fruit Machine, hosted in partnership with the LGBT Purge Fund.

The evening will feature a discussion with survivors and experts of the LGBT Purge – a large‐scale human rights violation that took place in Canadian government workplaces for more than four decades. During the Purge, thousands of Canadians lost their livelihood because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
