A record turnout of more than 350 students, faculty and staff attended the 3rd Annual Rainbow Tie Gala at the Doris McCarthy Gallery on January 26.

The gala’s theme was “Celebrating the Ties – Tradition, Identity, Exploration, Sexuality & Gender.” It was put on by UTSC’s Positive Space Committee.

The gala featured a guest lecture by Montreal scholar Linda Morra on Jane Rule, considered by many the most important lesbian writer of the 20th Century. Morra discovered the manuscript of Rule’s autobiography in the University of British Columbia Archives, which described her coming of age as a lesbian and writer during the 1930s to ‘50s.
