History / Biographical
Kathleen Brindley was born in 1942 in Gary, Indiana, U.S. She worked in advertising in Indianapolis through the 1960s. In 1970, Brindley emigrated to Ontario, where she remained for the rest of her life, living in several towns until eventually settling in Toronto. Brindley was very involved in Toronto’s queer community from the 1970s until her death, appearing on a 1972 CBC special, All About Women, that was censored before it could air, in part because of its discussion of homosexuality. She was a passionate grassroots activist with an interest in queer visibility, anti-racism movements, and community-based harm reduction work. She was also an artist who frequently exhibited in Toronto’s first commercial queer art gallery, the O’Connor, as well as operating her own gallery, Artcetera. Brindley was an avid biker and belonged to the Amazons, an all-female motorcycle club.
