Abstract: The Coalition for Gay Rights in Ontario is becoming increasingly active in supporting Gays across the province who are organizing for personal support, social service or political change. "Operation Outreach" was a grassroots organizing program initiated by the Coalition and mobilized by Robin Hardy in the 1980. Out of that experience, it was decided that those "cultivating gay consciousness and community" in isolated parts of the province face difficult tasks that require both support and information. The organizers also recognized that there is a wealth of experience among Gay Liberation groups in southern Ontario that have been developing a range of services, community development projects and businesses. Thus, they decided to sponsor the Resources - sharing weekend to which the brochure points. It is hoped that this informal event will provide a process for open discussion, resource and experience sharing and good times. All of this is to aid those gay and lesbian persons who are "staring from scratch" in smaller Ontario communities.
This organization no longer exists.
