National Portrait Collection

The collection was established in 1998 with 25 original portraits, and coincided with our 25th anniversary. Since then, the collection has grown to 75 portraits of various mediums that include photography, oil and watercolour.

The collection is regularly exhibited in our home in Toronto as well as at other venues across Canada, in celebration of all LGBT communities.

We are committed to continuous expansion of the collection, thereby actively engaging in the creation of our own historical record.
