Symposium to look back at the brief, but important, life of The Body Politic

There is to be symposium at the University of Toronto's University College, marking the 45th anniversary of the founding of The Body Politic, a groundbreaking gay liberation publication. Saturday, May 28 9:30 - 4 pm. 
For 15 years (1971-1987) its writers challenged sexual orthodoxies, documented community resistance, celebrated queer history and culture, and fought for press freedom in a famous court case. 
Does this history of advocacy journalism offer lessons for new generations of queer activists? Join a symposium of scholars and activists to debpuate the question.
Concurrently, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre is running a new play called Body Politic from May 21 to June 12. Registration for the symposium is at http://papertrails.eventbrite.ca/. Information about the play and to reserve tickets
