Main Street Ontario: Thunder Bay
Thunder Bay, Ontaro

Main Street Ontario: Thunder Bay 

In 1970 Fort Williams and Port Arthur amalgamated into #ThunderBay, creating the largest city in Northwestern Ontario. Isolated from surrounding cities, an underground queer community found refuge at the Ukrainian Labour Temple, sharing meals with their chosen family. With courage and resilience, they launched the first Thunder Pride, bringing together friends and family in a celebration of love and acceptance.
