The Church Street Steps

Introduction for The Church Street Steps

During the 1980s and 1990s the 4 or 5 steps leading from the sidewalk to the entrance of The Second Cup Coffee Shop became famous as a hangout for the youth of Toronto’s sexual minority communities. These obviously were all taken one evening when I happened to be on Church Street with a camera. A few names I remember, but I think it best just to post the gallery and perhaps someone familiar with the group will send me their names.
