Scope and content

Item part is part 1 (of 4) of a compilation of clips about Celebration '90 and live footage captured by David L. E. Miles during the opening and closing ceremonies of Celebration '90 in Vancouver (B.C.). The program opens with clips of CBC, CTV, and other news reports which touch on the backlash of Christian fundamentalists, their opposition to Gay Games III being held in Vancouver, and a controversial ad ran by a fundamentalist pastor in the Vancouver Sun; the news clips also contain comments from Celebration '90 Director Richard Dopson and Alderman Gordon Price. The recording then continues with live footage of fireworks, presumably those of the opening ceremonies of Celebration '90, followed by live footage of the opening ceremonies in B.C. Place stadium, including performances by Lesbian and Gay Bands of America, a welcome from committee chairs, staff, and the Board of Directors; the rainbow flag flown by Brent Nicholson Earle, and the parade of athetes.
