Queer Legends: Jane Rule

You don’t skip English class when you have a professor like Linda Morra, PhD. In this episode, we explore one of the most influential authors and Lesbians in Canadian history - including the discovery of an unimaginable treasure in an old dusty box. Jane Rule wrote honestly and courageously about Lesbian love and relationships at a time when it was still illegal to be a Lesbian in Canada. Rule helped “create a nation” of Queer activists and activism along the west coast of Canada and the United States. She also contributed to the unraveling of Canada Customs censorship of her and other authors’ LGBTQ2S work at the Canadian border, as well as the broader acceptance of Queer and Lesbian citizens by Canadian society.
