The history of the queer, black community and the importance of archiving was discussed at the sixth annual Queering Black History Month event at Oakham Lounge on Thursday night.

Chrys Saget-Richard, a coordinator at the Racialised Students’ Collective, organized the event along with the Ryerson Students’ Union.

Tonight … was basically a conversation around how we are able to record our own history, rather than having it told by people who are not queer or black or trans,” Saget-Richard said.

Speakers at the event included Abdi Osman, Beverly Bain and Lena Peters, all active members in the Toronto queer, black community.
