In the spring of 2010, Toronto lost one of its most important queer civic heroes when local artist, dj, activist, impresario, promoter, party-thrower, café operator, community-builder, and lover Will Munro died of brain cancer at the unfathomably young age of 35. Famed for his subversive, irreverent visual art, which co-opted rock ’n’ roll imagery and raunchy gay iconography, and his legendary Vazaleen dance parties, which singlehandedly reinvented Toronto’s queer nightlife culture, Will did more to revolutionize both his community and his city in a decade than most folks do in a lifetime.

Weaving together a collage of stories from and about the people who knew and loved him, Army of Lovers is both a biography of Will Munro and a document of a galvanizing period in the history of Toronto, a moment when the city’s various subcultures – the queer community, the art scene, the independent music universe, the grassroots activist enclaves – came of age and collided with one another.

Sarah Liss is The Grid's frequent music columnist and an associate editor of the culture section. Her writing has appeared in a number of places, including Toronto Life, Maisonneuve, cbc.ca, Spinner and Flare, and onstage at Nightwood Theatre. Her piece 'A Force of Will,' a love letter to deceased Toronto artist Will Munro published in The Grid, was nominated for a National Magazine Award in 2013.
