Histoire administrative

LOG was started in 1995 after Sue Smee put an advertisement in Capital Xtra, Ottawa’s gay and lesbian newspaper, inviting lesbians in the area to meet at her home. This first meeting consisted of 12 women and membership grew over the next 10 years to over 100 members. The organization was led by a Coordinating Committee with each individual taking on a specific role and each activity conducted by the group was assigned an activity leader. In 2005 Sue Smee stepped down from an organizing role, although the group continued with new leadership afterwards and is still in operation as of 2018.

Historique de la conservation

Records were kept by the founder Sue Smee until donation of 2008-003 in 2008. She donated 2011-110 in 2011 which contains additional LOG records for 1996-1998.

Portée et contenu

Fonds consists of organizational records and planning documents for the Lesbian Outdoors Group from 1995-2007. Meeting minutes detail disagreements over funds allocations, discussions of group management techniques, reflections on equity within the group and how social dynamics contribute to equity and inequity. A majority of the materials consist of handwritten or printed notes recording and planning LOG activities and meetings. The fonds also contain LOG promotional materials and photos.
