The Body Politic (TBP) existed for just over 15 years, publishing a total of 135 issues between 1971 and 1987. The journal was based in Toronto, but TBP rose to become the leading gay and lesbian liberation periodical in all of Canada and "an internationally respected voice" of radical homosexual thought (Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives).
