January 13 Toronto Nathan Cohen […]




January 13 Toronto Nathan Cohen commented in his "Monday Miscellany" column in the Toronto Daily Star that local police feared that recently closed after-hours clubs had reopened as "hangouts for male and female homosexuals." On January 21, James Egan's letter of rebuttal, "Police Concern for Homosexual Clubs 'Illogical,' " was published in the Star. Egan was Canada's foremost gay activist during the period 1949-64. (see also August 5,14,1964.)
