Club Carousel was Calgary’s first gay bar, our first gay-owned space, and an important milestone in the queer community’s history. It is where we collectively declared independence for the first time in Calgary from our culture of homophobia, repression and intimidation. Club Carousel was a spark, a galvanizer, a gathering place and a place where community was created and nurtured. Everything that our queer community has achieved in the past 50 years is due to Club Carousel and the brave Calgarians who risked so much to open it and run it. If you are queer, an ally, or if you simply value diversity and inclusion in Calgary, we invite you to support this celebration event.
