Title

"CHAN narrowly escapes folding"

Description

Article reporting that, after the Community Homophile Association of Newfoundland’s annual election the previous November left three executive positions unfilled, CHAN members filled the vacant positions at their January meeting and saved the organization from folding at the last minute. Also reports that the manager of the Sea Breeze bar had been giving gay patrons a hard time lately, but that it remained the most popular gay night spot in St. John’s.

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.
