Subject

Description

The Free Press was a short-lived publication created in 1968 by the Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Society at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was introduced initially in 1968 as a placeholder paper for The McGill Daily while it was on hiatus. During the 1960s, The Daily and Free Press were important venues for outspoken students facing opposition from student government and the university administration. They covered issues like the War in Vietnam, women's liberation and reproductive rights, racial justice, gay liberation and the counterculture. The pages of the undated issue here focus on various aspects of the emerging gay liberation movement.
