Re: “The accidental activist

I lived in Halifax from 1978 to 1980, and I went to The Turret all the time. It was a great gay community center, and I often think of the people I got to know there, the music, and the lights.
In 1980 the Turret put on a cabaret, and it was a lot of fun.
Hallowe'en was a great time there. In 1979 the winners of the costume competition were Miss Vicky and Miss Piggy.
It was a tie! Miss Piggy stepped up to the mike and said, "I abdicate." She graciously handed over the title to Miss Vicky.
Halifax WAS exciting then, especially for those of us who moved there from small towns and rural areas, like myself.
I moved to Halifax from a rural New Brunswick area in 1976, and October 18 was my official Coming Out time. That was when I phoned the GAE helpline on Friday night. I asked the man on the line where I could go. He told me about the Turret and Thee Klub on the third floor in the Green Lantern Building on Barrington Street.
I went to Thee Klub, nervous and ready.
