Did you catch our latest Maritime Moments series on our Youtube channel?
If it looks familiar–that’s because the full interview with Michael Davis was featured in our 2022 Queer at Sea: Tales from the 2SLGBTQ+ Community exhibit! The interview is held permanently in our digital Collection, but we wanted it to be accessible publicly as well! We connected so strongly to Michael’s stories, reflections, and memories of coastal life, work, and recreational boating, and loved his humour and insight on finding community, and navigating a sometimes hostile industry as a gay man.
The interview has been edited into short thematic moments: up first is Identity and Self. Keep an eye on our Youtube channel to see them monthly this summer, and Happy Pride!
