The Toronto Sun is modeled on British tabloid journalism, even borrowing the name of The Sun newspaper published in London , and some of the features, including the typically bikini-clad Sunshine Girl , who was initially on the same page as the British paper - page 2 or 3. Traditionally on page 3, in the 1990s the Sunshine Girl feature was relocated to the Sports section. The feature was later moved to the inside back page, before being changed again in 2011; now two different photos of the same daily Sunshine Girl are published in every edition, one on page 3, and another on the inside back page.

David Dinsmore , the new Sun editor, has vowed to continue printing pictures of topless women on Page 3 as it is a "good way of selling newspapers".

Speaking on the radio station LBC 97.3 on Wednesday morning, Dinsmore said that Page 3 would remain in the paper despite growing criticism from campaigners.

He compared Page 3 to a new exhibition of erotic Japanese paintings at the British Museum in London and said: "This stuff at the British Museum is far more explicit and raunchy."

An artists’ collective researching lesbian and gay pioneers from Melbourne’s west has sparked a search for a “Sunshine gay girl” who wrote a letter to the Sunshine Advocate in 1980.

Wild Books Collective, comprising Stephen Louis, Susan Miller and Gennivieve Collier, found the letter while searching the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives for an exhibition titled Other: Queer Stories, Past and Present, showing at Altona’s Joel Gallery until
February 15.

Among those featured are Sunshine’s Leigh Bowery, who ran a London nightclub, and Gordon Doak who, in 1973, walked to the city through the streets of Sunshine, Tottenham and Footscray with a banner proclaiming: ‘I am proud of my homosexuality. Please change the repress[ive laws] against homosexuals and let us live in peace’.
