Kelly & The Kellygirls have just released a video for their track “Better Times,” and the queer Canadian indie group connects the dots between past and present activism.
The video features protest footage from the Pride Toronto censorship controversy, the Toronto G20 and the 1981 Toronto bathhouses raids. It ends with Trudeau’s famous line, “There’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.” You might also recognize a number of queer community activists, including El-Farouk Khaki, Ryan G Hinds, Elle Flanders, Jane Farrow, Troy Jackson, Tim McCaskell, Kristyn Wong-Tam, Anna Willats and Jeremy Dias.
Speaking of Pride Toronto, the organization is looking for three new board members. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, Aug 25.
