Citizens News, Volume IV, Number 12, 1964-1965

Summary

LGBTQ+ newspapers became more available beginning in the 1950s as organizations added print media to their activist tool kit. These newspapers were a regionally focused way to rally the LGBTQ+ community, share information, and fight discrimination. Many of these newspapers came to rely on gay bars as a location for disbursement as they were among the only private gay spaces in many cities.
