The Body Politic: A History of Queer News in the Gay and Lesbian Liberation Era

First published in 1971, The Body Politic was Canada’s primary periodical for gay liberation for sixteen years. It amplified the lives of queer people and helped galvanize the gay and lesbian liberation movement. Join Raegan Swanson, Executive Director of The ArQuives and Nicholas Hrynyk of Thompson Rivers University in a conversation moderated by Carleton University professor Patrizia Gentile as they delve deep into the history of queer news in Canada.
