'Canada's official homosexual' George HISLOP dies at age 78
Always available to gay people in trouble
Founded country's first gay rights organization
By Christian COTRONEO, Staff Reporter
George HISLOP's phone number was always in the book.
And he paid a steep price for it.
There were the 3 a.m. phone calls, death threats, even a call from a man who had just murdered a 12-year-old boy.
But even at a time when being gay was illegal, HISLOP wanted his name in the phone book.
"I said to George, 'Why don't you get your number unlisted?'" recalled longtime friend Peter BOCHOVE. "He said, 'Well, what if someone needs to reach me?'"
And I said, 'Who?'"
"He said, 'I never met him yet. It might be somebody who needs to talk.'"
That lifeline ended yesterday at Toronto Grace Hospital, where Hislop succumbed to a long illness at age 78.
A 35-year activist for gay rights, Friends say he never came out of the closet -- because he had never spent any time there.
"George had a wonderful advantage over a lot of gay men," BOCHOVE said. "He grew up in a family environment where he was treated like the person he was. His sexuality was never an issue."
And HISLOP knew what to do with his advantage.
"He had a finely honed sense of injustice and when that was offended in any way shape or form, he had to do something about it."
That quality, however, could also be a trial in a world where homosexuality was illegal. And the threat of a beating loomed ever large.
"He was Canada's official homosexual for many years," recalled friend and lawyer Doug ELLIOT/ELLIOTT. "He really felt that, despite all the hate calls and things like that, he always felt that it was important that he be available to gay people in trouble."
After homosexual acts between consenting adults were finally removed from the Criminal Code in 1969, HISLOP wasted little time in founding the city's first gay rights group -- "which was really the first gay rights organization in the country," ELLIOT/ELLIOTT said.
He founded Gay Day in 1970, which would eventually evolve into the massive celebration known as Pride Week. He helped rally thousands to protest police raids on bathhouses in 1981. HISLOP also helped organize legal help for those convicted.
One night in 1977, Saul BETESH, one of three men convicted of murdering 12-year-old Emmanuel JACQUES, took advantage of HISLOP's open-telephone policy.
"He called George and told George he had killed this boy, and where the body was hidden," BOCHOVE recalled. "So George had to deal with all of that -- and did so. He arranged for him to get a lawyer, he called the police, got him to turn himself in."
The discovery that HISLOP had esophageal cancer came after he learned he had Parkinson's disease, diabetes and an extremely weak heart.
But even during his long illness, HISLOP led a campaign against the federal government for survivor benefits for widowed same-sex partners. His own partner of 28 years, art director Ron SHEARER, died in 1986.
True to character, HISLOP emerged victorious, receiving a cheque in the mail just six weeks ago. But he never managed to take the cruise he had planned.
Indeed, HISLOP's final days were spent in hospital surrounded by a steady stream of Friends and supporters, including one-time political rival and longtime friend New Democratic Party Leader Jack LAYTON.
HISLOP often held court in a bathhouse on Maitland Ave., regaling listeners with tales about the gay community.
But even his legendary fondness for bathhouses came in handy.
In 1988, when BOCHOVE learned the city wasn't renewing leases for bathhouses, he sued the City of Toronto.
"George HISLOP was accepted by the court as an expert witness," BOCHOVE recalled, with a chuckle. "In fact, Judge Harold referred to him in his decision as a habitué of gay bathhouses for the past four and a half decades -- which tickled George. But his very expert testimony won us the case. There's no doubt in my mind. When George sat down to talk, people would listen."
Visitation hours at the Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home (467 Sherbourne St.) are from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. tomorrow and Wednesday. There will be no funeral at HISLOP's request.

JACZEK, Stanislaw Michal, P.Eng.
(November 25, 1917-October 22, 2005)
Mike died on October 22, 2005, in his 88th year, at Southlake Regional Health Centre, Newmarket. Predeceased by his beloved wife Primrose, he will be deeply missed by his daughter, Helena and her husband Hershel. He was the very best "Gramps" to Natasha and Nicholas.
Born in Poland during the First World War, Mike was an Officer in the Polish Cavalry when the Germans invaded in 1939. He was captured by the Russians on the Eastern Front and was sent to a concentration camp in Siberia. After Germany attacked Russia, Mike escaped from the Gulag and, after many adventures, made his way across Asia to join the British Army in Palestine. From there he was sent to South Africa to join Polish Squadron 663, attached to the Royal Air Force, to learn how to fly. Because of his expertise in aerobatics, he became a reconnaissance pilot and spotter for the field artillery. In 1944, at the battle of Monte Cassino, he earned Poland's highest military honour, the Virtuti Militare, and was also awarded Italy's Croce Al Valore Militare.
After the War, he studied at the University of London, graduating with a Master's degree in Chemical Engineering. While working in the cable industry in Britain, he was directly involved in the design and manufacture of the first submarine Transatlantic Telephone Cable and was present when the first call was made in 1956. Recruited to work for Canada Wire and Cable in 1962, he was recognized for his knowledge of coaxial cable, polyethylene insulation and extrusion of copper wire. He greatly enjoyed the opportunities he had to provide technical know-how in many parts of the world.
Family, Friends and colleagues will remember Mike for his courage, his vigour and liveliness, his love of discussion and argument - preferably with a strong drink and cigar in hand!
"Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings
Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung,
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious burning blue
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew.
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
"High Flight" by John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

(November 25, 1917-October 22, 2005)
Mike died on October 22, 2005, in his 88th year at Southlake Regional Health Centre, Newmarket. Predeceased by his beloved wife Primrose, he will be deeply missed by his daughter, Helena and her husband Hershel. He was the very best "Gramps" to Natasha and Nicholas. Born in Poland during the First World War, Mike was an Officer in the Polish Cavalry when the Germans invaded in 1939. He was captured by the Russians on the Eastern Front and was sent to a concentration camp in Siberia. After Germany attacked Russia, Mike escaped from the Gulag and, after many adventures, made his way across Asia to join the British Army in Palestine. From there he was sent to South Africa to join Polish Squadron 663, attached to the Royal Air Force, to learn how to fly. Because of his expertise in aerobatics, he became a reconnaissance pilot and spotter for the field artillery. In 1944, at the Battle of Monte Cassino, he earned Poland's highest military honour, the Virtuti Militare, and was also awarded Italy's Croce Al Valore Militare.
