At present, in Canada, it is rather easy to access a LGBT content whether on TV, with the LGBT channel OUTtv, or online.

Marking the 25th Anniversary of the GLBT Historical Society, the dream of opening a museum dedicated to the GLBT culture has come true. The first of its kind in the United States, the GLBT History Museum is now open at 4127 18th Street (between Castro and Collingwood). The museum includes 1,600 square feet of gallery and program space built to the specifications of the Historical Society, with custom fixtures, lighting and multimedia installations reflecting professional standards. The museum will features two debut exhibitions: In the main gallery, "Our Vast Queer Past: Celebrating GLBT History," curated by historians Gerard Koskovich, Don Romesburg and Amy Sueyoshi; and in the front gallery, "Great Collections of the GLBT Historical Society Archives."
