Item Description:The Body Politic was a queer, activism-based Canadian monthly magazine published from 1971 to 1987. It was one of the first significant gay publications in Canada, and played a large role in amplifying the Gay Liberation Movement and creating a space for queer issues and voices to be heard. The Body Politic often came under fire for the content that it published. The most visible of these fights was the furor caused by the publication of "Men Loving Boys Loving Men," a 1977 article by Gerald Hannon that explored pedophilia. The article was published shortly after the horrific murder of Emanuel Jaques, a 12-year-old shoe-shine boy, by three gay men.
The Cushing Library/Women & Gender Studies copy was acquired as part of The Don Kelly Research Collection of Gay Literature and Culture.
