Title

"Frustration in Newfoundland"

Description

Letter to the editor of The Body Politic from a reader in St. John's written in the aftermath of CHAN's folding, outlining what the author sees as the reasons it folded and what would be necessary for a new organization to take its place. They explain that many queer individuals living in Newfoundland had grown accustomed to “hiding” and felt no desire to join a political group that would draw attention to themselves.

This article was posted in the Body Politic newsletter. The Body Politic was a queer, activist-based Canadian monthly newsletter that was published from 1971 to 1987. It is one of the most significant queer publications in Canadian history, and played a significant role in amplifying the Gay Liberation Movement and provided a crucial space for queer voices to be heard.
