We once walked these streets before you knew how to dance. It has always been Black, Brown and Indigenous trans women who led the Queer Revolution. The history of so called Vancouver must add the nuance that Queer Sex Workers refused to back down when it came to fighting for what is right. Now home to mainstream Queer Identity, Smemchus/Smamkw’ch rests at the bottom of the ”Gayest” street in Vancouver, Davie Street. David Lam Park’s QUEERING HISTORIES adds the nuance of how Sex Work and Queer Identity have intermingled in Vancouver’s West End.
