Montreal-born and Toronto-based singer-songwriter Briannah Donolo, known as Rêve, gained attention after her performance of the national anthem at a Canadiens de Montréal game went viral.

Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, Rêve connected with production duo Banx & Ranx, leading to a creative turning point in her career. Now signed to Universal Music Canada and Astralwerks, Rêve has gained over 110 million global streams, achieving a #1 US Dance radio hit with “Whitney” and seeing her track “CTRL + ALT + DEL” go platinum in under eight months.

North Bay LGBTQI Timeline

Knowing Our LGBTQI History Illuminates the Path to Our Future

Take a trip down memory lane… and learn more about how the LGBTQI community has evolved in this county. Sonoma County has long been a friendly and welcoming home to LGBTQI people. In the 1970s, lesbian and gay culture flourished here. The Gay Liberation and Lesbian Feminist movements created grassroots organizations and leaders, businesses and social groups dedicated to coming out and establishing ourselves in public spaces. LGBTQI people moved to Sonoma County from other less welcoming areas to enjoy the freedom created here.

Did you know?

  • In the 1960’s there was a gay and lesbian bar in Guerneville.
  • In the mid 1970s there was a lesbian trucking team (that would be 18 wheeler!)
    that operated as part of Red Clover Workers Brigade out of Santa Rosa.
  • By the late 1970’s Gay men from everywhere came to the Russian River to play
    and to live.
  • The devastating AIDS epidemic changed the way we think about and experience
    community, forever. We learned to care for each other in ways that have made
    us stronger and more connected.
  • The International Intersex Movement started right here in Sonoma County.

This first year, The North Bay LGBTQI Timeline highlights the transformative years of 1970 to 1990. This collection of images and descriptive narratives will amplify your experience of PRIDE!
