On Saturday, June 22, from 1-2pm, River Bookshop is celebrating Pride Month with Walter Cassidy. Walter will give a talk on LGBTQ+ history in Windsor-Essex County, including Amherstburg’s rich history.

Walter Cassidy currently is the educator in residence for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. He has been an educator for the past 24 years as well as a Windsor Ontario historian, and activist.

He currently teaches a AQ course for University of Windsor: How to Teach LGBTQ Students for the last six years. He is the Chair of WERA (Windsor/Essex Rainbow Alliance) which is working to preserve 2SLGBTQAI history in the Windsor/Essex County area as well as partnering with the city on creating permanent spaces and monuments for future generations to enjoy.

He has recently been published on various local 2SLGBTQAI historical moments including a local timeline going back to 1803. Last year, he had an exhibit at the Chimczuk Museum and one at the Amherstburg Freedom Museum entitled β€˜Black, Queer and Here.’ He is currently working on finishing a book on local 2SLGBTQAI history entitled β€œGet Use To It.”
