New Westminster’s Queer History

Located 20 km via the Trans-Canada Highway from Vancouver, New Westminster is Western Canada’s oldest city. Named by Queen Victoria, the Royal City is a revitalized and trendy hidden gem of British Columbia. A historical and cultural hub which has something for everyone, from food and shopping, to arts, theatre, and live entertainment.

New Westminster was made the capital of the Colony of British Columbia in 1858. In 1866 when Vancouver Island was united with the colony the capital city was moved to Victoria in an unpopular move on the Mainland.  British Columbia joined the Canadian Confederation in 1871.

Raymond Burr (1917 to 1993) was probably one of the most famous people born in New Westminster.  He was known for his acting in television dramas such as Perry Mason and Ironside. After Burr’s death from cancer in 1993 his personal life came into question. Burr was married to actress Isaballa Ward in a marriage that only lasted a few months.  Burr met Robert Benevides in 1960 who would become Burr’s longtime partner.  Benevides was an actor and a veteran of the Korean War.  The relationship lasted until Burr’s death in 1993.  While Burr had never revealed his homosexuality during his lifetime, it was an open secret.
