The Body Politic Gay Liberation Newspaper 50 issues £225.00

50 copies of this important Gay Liberation newspaper from Toronto. Conceived in a basement in a downtown Victorian flat in 1971 by members of Toronto Gay Action and others, the emerging Body Politic Editorial Collective, and later the non-profit Pink Triangle Press, were faced with relentless persecution by Canadian postal and law authorities. Early on, mainstream newspapers, particularly The Toronto Star and The Globe, refused to carry any advertisements for The Body Politic; in 1977, the police raided the offices of The Body Politic (as they would do again); in 1979, the non-profit publisher of The Body Politic, the Pink Triangle Press, and its three directors went on trial in Toronto charged with using the mail to distribute "obscene, indecent, immoral, or scurrilous" material. Ultimately, the defendants were found not guilty, although the legal costs of defense and continuing harassment constantly challenged the survival of this publication and ultimately led to its demise.
