Name of creator
Carroll Holland was born in Windsor on July 3, 1942, and was an activist, writer, journalist, buddhist, and lesbian. Holland came out later in life around age 40. She volunteered with GO Info, the Gay and Lesbian newspaper in Ottawa as a member of the editorial board, and Pink Triangle Services in the 1980s and 1990s. In addition Holland was a founding member of EGALE. In 1991 Holland initiated innovative work with Ottawa's Police Services along with David Pepper to form the permanent Ottawa-Carleton Police Liaison Committee for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Communities, in the wake of gay-bashings and deteriorating relations between the queer community and the police. Here, she devoted 12 years and earned a Pioneer Aware from the Ottawa police in 2011. Holland also engaged with a variety of human rights groups and peace movements, combining her activism and Buddhist practices.
Carroll Holland passed away on December 22, 2012, at age 70.
