November 12, 2016, 6 p.m. The Bram & Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library

CLGA’s premier gala event – Flashback – is returning on November 12, 2016. And TD Bank is pleased to announce its return as this year’s Presenting Sponsor.

This year, we’re going to flashback to the 90s with an “Electric Circus” gala and re-create the spirit of the decade – the fun, the fashion, the artistic expression, and the political and cultural turning points. To make this happen, the Archives is thrilled to announce that the iconic TV personality, and a 1990s fixture on MuchMusic and City-TV, Monika Deol will be your host and emcee to animate the event. And to host our Flashback 90s Fashion Show we are pleased to announce that legendary Fashion Icon Jeanne Beker will be on location to fill the room with her inimitable style and grace.

We’re bringing back the highly entertaining and dynamic “Auctionista,” the photo booth, fine food and drinks and some extra special guests and celebrities to get everyone on the dance floor. Buy tickets for the party of the season and know that you’re supporting the CLGA to be a trusted guardian of LGBTQ+ histories now and for generations to come.
