Populating the prosopography, one factoid at a time We are creating a digital queer Canadian prosopography in the service of historians, literary critics, and the general public. The LGLC project extends the codex form by representing the relationships between the people, places, and events in the chronologies in spatial and temporal ways not permitted by print monographs. Gay liberation's knowing prosopographical resistance Encoding both the events and the bibliographic sources they rely on has let us plot the relationships between the people, organizations, and authors in Don McLeod's text. This empowered the lesbian community because they had never heard the term dyke used officially, because it was only used as a derogatory term against them.
