History / Biographical
GALA/LA was formed in 1991 and incorporated as a Society in 1996. Like many other GLBT groups, GALA’s history relates back to the 80’s and the early days of HIV/AIDS in the gay community, when people started to unite to provide support and share information. GALA provides programs and social networking to a membership of 200 Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Two-Spirited, Queer and Trans-Identified individuals. Services included Peer Support Phone Line, GALA Occasion (monthly newsletter), the website, coffee nights, monthly family potluck dinner gatherings, dances (9 a year), and the pride BBQ. Over the years, GALA has received funding for short term projects such as: Education and Awareness of HIV/AIDS, Outreach to educators and service providers, research in sexuality/sexual activity of men, and a youth program named “Colors”. GALA/LA 1206 - 6 Avenue S, Lethbridge, AB GALA Occasion has been published eight or more times a year for the past fifteen years, featuring news about Lethbridge and from around the world. Three hundred copies are printed for each edition, mailed to members across Canada, and distributed to coffee shops and organizations in Lethbridge and surrounding cities, including Medicine Hat and Calgary. Donor provided the following: "We had people who draw cartoons or write columns for us, publish and advice column, sort of a tongue-in-cheek sort of thing. Not very risque at the time, but that sort of stuff. It was fun. At that was when the newsletters were really the only form of communication... At one time, we had about 250 members and a fair number of those were couples, but we probably had about 200 addresses. And as part of their membership in GALA, they got this mailed to them. There's got to be a record, and these letters or these papers, are the first draft. If nobody's going to record it, then it will be lost."
