Notes:
In January 1953, a small group of tenacious men published the first issue of _ONE Magazine_, the first openly distributed publication focused on issues facing homosexuals in America. In the following years, the magazine's distribution grew well into the thousands and quickly spawned ONE, Incorporated to produce the magazine and pursue additional research and educational efforts. In his new book, _Pre-Gay L.A.: A Social History of the Movement for Homosexual Rights_, C. Todd White traces the histories of this magazine, ONE, Inc., their founders, and several related organizations in a thoroughly detailed narrative. White posits that although many activists and historians may see New York, with the events at Stonewall, and San Francisco, with its large and iconic gay community, as the epicenters of the gay rights movement from 1969 on, Los Angeles was actually the original home to the modern movement. (Christine M. Lamberson, review of C. Todd White. Pre-Gay L.A.: A Social History of the Movement for Homosexual Rights. Urbana University of Illinois Press, 2009. xvii + 258 pp. Published on H-California (March, 2010)
