Naam van de archiefvormer


Gerald Hannon (b. New Brunswick, July 10, 1944) is an award-winning Canadian freelance journalist, gay activist, and former instructor in the School of Journalism at Ryerson University, a position he held from 1972 to 1995. Beginning in 1972, Hannon was a member of the editorial board of Toronto LGBT magazine, the Body Politic, and became one of the publication's most prolific contributors. During his time at Ryerson, he gained notoriety for his involvement two major controversies. The first occurred in 1977, when Hannon was tried and acquitted of obscenity charges following the publication of his article "Men Loving Boys Loving Men"--a philosophical exploration of pedophilia--in The Body Politic. The second occurred in 1995, following the publication of an article in the Toronto Sun exposing Hannon's occasional work as a prostitute. Ryerson responded to the article by suspending Hannon, reinstating him after the filing of a union grievance, and then failing to renew his contract the following semester. His effective termination occurred in the face of outspoken support for Hannon from his students, The Ryersonian newspaper, and the Ryerson Review of Journalism.
