History / Biographical
The Toronto Area Gays and Lesbians (TAGL), originally Toronto Area Gays or TAG, was a volunteer-run queer support, information, and peer counseling phone line founded in 1975 and was active until 2008. TAGL consisted of a group of men and women who offered general information, peer counseling, and in general, provided support to Toronto’s LGBTQ community. Volunteers answered questions, listened to callers, referred callers to resources and organizations, and information on events, places, community groups, and activities. The TAGL phone line were confidential calls, did not use caller id, and callers remained anonymous. They operated from 7:00pm until 10:00 pm, five nights a week. In the first few years of TAG, their office space was located at 651 Yonge Street (third floor). They moved to a space at Hotel Selby at 592 Sherbourne Street and moved again to 500 Church Street in the early nineties. In June 2000, the Toronto Area Gays and Lesbians were honored as a “Hero of our community” at the 3rd Annual Hero Awards Gala in support of Community CARE Home Hospice.
