"The Fruit Machine" Documentary Viewing & Fireside Chat presented by TD Bank Group and Halifax Public Libraries
We invite you to join the TD Atlantic 2SLGBTQ+ and Women@TD Employee Resource Groups, together with the Halifax Public Libraries to view the award-winning documentary film "The Fruit Machine" followed by a fireside chat with survivors of Canada's longest-running, largest-scale violations of human rights of any workforce in Canadian history.
From the 1940s through the 1990s, the Canadian government purged homosexuals from civil and military service. Learn first-hand how Survivors united to seek justice and how they continue to focus on reconciliation and memorialization, today.
