2015 is the 25th Anniversary of SEXGARAGE, a turning point in Montreal's LGBT history and what some consider to be Montreal's "Stonewall". Photographer Linda Dawn Hammond was at the party and documented the events, which included a vicious and homophobic police attack on the SEX GARAGE patrons, who had been sent out on the street. She was invited to be a Guest of Honour at the Fierte Pride Events, Montreal, in August 2015. Her 1990 photos of Sexgarage and the Love-In protest at Police Station 25, many previously unseen, were on public exhibit during Fierte Montreal 2015.
