Scope and Contents:
This series is arranged alphabetically by publication title. This series contains a variety of periodicals, newsletters, and newspapers produced by and for the LGBT community. There are publications that are both national in scope and locally oriented. There are early issues of Gay and Gay Power, two New York City-based newspapers. Other periodicals include The Advocate, Bay Area Reporter, and California Scene, a Los Angeles-based magazine published sporadically from 1971 through 1975 (the Summer 1975 issue covers the period December 1974 through July 1975). In the February 1971 issue of California Scene there are two pages of anonymously handwritten notes about items in the magazine. California Scene featured Colt Studios illustrations on their covers as well as photographs from the collection of writer-actor Roy Dean.

There are a full run of Steam magazine and nearly a full run of RFD magazine. There are newsletter issues from chapters of the Daughters of Bilitis and Mattachine Society (Colorado). Of particular interest to researchers may be the issues of ONE magazine. This magazine began publication in 1953 as an openly gay publication. In 1954 the United States Postal Service refused to deliver an issue prompting a long legal battle ending in 1958 when the United States Supreme Court established the right of gay publications to be distributed through the mail.

This series includes copies of the Mattachine Review and ONE Institute Quarterly: Homophile Studies. This series includes forty-one years of The Empty Closet, (1971-2012) (excepting the years 1976, 1978) from Rochester, New York, reportedly one of the three oldest gay publications in the United States. This series includes the final issue of Washington Blade prior to its bankruptcy and the first issue of its interim publication, DC Agenda. It includes the first issue of the new Washington Blade after its purchase by new owners post bankruptcy. There are also issues of the groundbreaking publication, The Ladder, published by the Daughters of Bilitis. Because some periodicals changed point of publication location, only the state has been given, when known, for identification purposes. Fourteen states are represented and two foreign countries (Canada and England), with the strongest representation being from California and New York.

This series includes Orlando, Florida area publications collected after the Pulse nightclub massacre 2016 June 12.
