Name of creator
Project Lambda was incorporated in 1978 as an apolitical agency whose objectives were to promote public understanding and acceptance of homosexuality, and to foster the personal, social and civil welfare of homosexually-oriented persons in Manitoba. Project Lamdba (sometimes operating as "Friends and Neighbors") sought to meet these objectives by providing and disseminating, through publications, lectures, discussion groups and counselling services, accurate information about homosexuality. It provided, through libraries, reading rooms and data files, educational facilities concerning the relationships between homosexually-oriented persons and their society, their families, their peers, contemporary institutions, etc. In addition, the organization helped establish a forum for the examination and amelioration of the personal, medical, legal and recreational needs of the homosexual community. In 1982, after years of fundraising, Project Lambda and the Oscar Wilde Memorial Society opened Giovanni's Room on the second floor of 275 Sherbrook Street.
