In June 1969, Canada enacted landmark legislation to “decriminalize” homosexuality nationwide. 50 years later, there is a need to explore how this history continues to impact the LGBTQI2S community. On a national tour across Canada, Sex, Sin & 69 is a historical retrospective that reflects on this contested history. Told through contemporary voices including queer academics, historians, activists, educators, artists and community builders, the film challenges our understanding of queer history by shining a light on widely adopted misconceptions surrounding decriminalization. The perspectives highlighted throughout the film lend it the contemporary relevance required to resonate with a modern audience largely removed from ‘decrim’ and historical queer Canada.
