Allis has compiled a tour of that includes social, legal, political and Indigenous queeries which span over the previous century of our 2SLGBTQ+ community experience. Enjoy facts and intrigue about locations throughout central Winnipeg. Listen to fabulous stories ranging from well to lesser known.
Everyone will leave with a QUEER BYKE Wpg History Tour zine, a well researched, referenced, and illustrated 24 page tour guidebook, compiled by Allis themself!
Need a bit of air in your tires or a touch of brake tightening? WRENCH mechanics will be on hand prior to tour departure to help. Please arrive generously early so we can properly attend to what’s needed.
