1976, January 9 (Friday) * Chevron: Article: Groups Join to Produce Newsletter

On p.3 of Chevron, Vol.16, No.27, 1976, January 9 (Friday), was an article by Michael Gordon entitled “Groups join to produce newsletter” describing a new community newsletter that was being started up. The article began as follows. “Twenty-five Kitchener-Waterloo community groups have joined forces to produce a monthly community newsletter. The first issue, now in preparation will be distributed later this month.” The article noted that “Each community group will outline their goals and ongoing programmes in the first issue.” It also pointed out that the newsletter was being started up because of poor coverage of the activities of the community groups in the Kitchener-Waterloo commercial newspapers, all under the control of the Kitchener-Waterloo Record. The article mentioned the names of some of the community groups involved, among which was “Gay Liberation”.

1976, March 12 (Friday) * Chevron: Article: John Herbert Speaks at UW

On p.3 of Chevron, Vol.16, No.36, 1976, March 12 (Friday), there was an article by Laura Mclaclan entitled “Style grows from artist's personality”, which described a seminar at which acclaimed Canadian gay playwright John Herbert spoke. The article began as follows. “An artist's style is established when his own personality makes his works, according to playwright John Herbert. Herbert feels that his play ‘Fortune and Men's Eyes’ represents the first time that he fully achieved this recognizable style. The play sprang from an experience at the age of 18 when Herbert spent six months in the Guelph Reformatory on the charge of having had a homosexual relationship.” The article later includes the following passage. “In a seminar for Rota Lister's English 335 class on Monday, Herbert discussed his dramatic style, his personal background on which much of his work is based and his view of the Canadian approach to the arts.”

1976, Summer to Fall * WUGLM: Gracey's Restaurant and Disco

The same group of WUGLM members take possession of a restaurant on King Street in April. The main floor becomes a 1930s- and 1940s-style restaurant, while the downstairs becomes a disco. The restaurant, named Gracey's, opens in June. The venture is not a financial success and closes in October. The Bridgeport Dances continue on unaffected.
