Younger generations may find it hard to believe that less than 50 years ago LGBTQ Jews in Montreal were denied space at the Jewish community centre—and even the most liberal congregation waffled on giving them a platform. That relatively recent period is illuminated in a new zine entitled Not Going Anywhere: History and Continuity in Queer Jewish Montreal, which its creators hope will spur scholarly treatment of this largely forgotten chapter. With support from the Museum of Jewish Montreal (MJM) and Jewish Community Foundation of Montreal (JCF), the four contributors spent months researching what it was like to be queer and Jewish in Montreal in the years after homosexuality was decriminalized in Canada in 1969.
