New interview: Charles "Chip" Macintosh

April 25, 2024

On August 22nd, 2023, two members of Points of Pride sat down with community member Charles “Chip” Macintosh. Charles discussed the dynamics between younger and older gay men, the community activity on Jackson Street, and the shared excitements and anxieties associated with Hamilton’s queer spaces. Charles also provided more insight into queer-friendly venues such as Billie’s Place, Big Julie’s Disco, M Bar, and the Embassy. This interview is now live and can be found on our home page. If you have any insights, memories, or stories about these or other 2SLGBTQ+ spaces in Hamilton, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] or via our social media!
