Vriend Versus Alberta: Trailer


April 2, 2023 is the 25th anniversary of the Supreme Court of Canada’s ruling on Vriend v. Alberta.

This historic decision paved the way for equality for Canada’s 2SLGBTQI+ community.

Vriend Versus Alberta is a special podcast series produced by Edmonton Community Foundation and the Edmonton Queer History Project.

Written and directed by Darrin Hagen, this project has been 18 months in the making. 

The story is told using more than a dozen in-depth interviews with key figures who participated in securing equality for sexual and gender minorities in Canada. 

This includes interviews with Delwin Vriend; his legal counsel Sheila Greckol and Doug Stollery; community activists Kristopher Wells, Michael Phair and Murray Billet; and former Supreme Court Justice Frank Iacobucci to name a few.

*NOTE: The terms “Queer and Trans” and “sexual and gender minorities” are used in this series to refer to the 2SLGBTQI+ community as a whole. We acknowledge the great diversity within this community, and you can find more information about this here.
