Toronto The weekly tabloid newspaper Tab (later a bi-weekly renamed Tab International) featured a regular, catty news and gossip column by Lady Bessborough entitled "The Gay Set." This became a prime source of information about happenings around Toronto's gay community, especially at the bars and clubs. Lady Bessborough was succeeded by Duke Gaylord, whose "Gay Set" column ran in Tab International as late as June 1985.
