All Welcome!

On the 40th anniversary of the murder that shocked Toronto, historians Gilberto Fernandes, Daniel Ross, Tom Hooper (York University), and sex worker/advocate Valerie Scott (Sex Professionals of Canada) will discuss how the death of the young Azorean shoeshine boy Emanuel Jaques impacted the city's Portuguese, LGBTQ, and sex worker communities, and led to the "revamping" of Yonge Street. This conversation coincides with Ontario's Portuguese Heritage Month celebrations and Pride Week, beginning on June 23rd.
