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

Join Raegan Swanson, Executive Director of The ArQuives, Nicholas Hrynyk of Thompson Rivers University and Tim McCaskell, writer, activist and collective member of The Body Politic as they delve into the history of queer news in Canada.
