ONE Archives Exhibit Highlights Queer L.A. Mags Dating Back to the 1940s

An exhibit from the ONE Archives in Los Angeles showcases the role of Southern California in the creation of LGBT publishing and activism. Check out some of these daring and confrontational publications.



The Los Angeles Advocate, Vol. 1, No. 3 (November 1967)
The Los Angeles Advocate began as the newsletter of Personal Rights In Defense and Education (PRIDE), a local activist group well known for protesting the LAPD raid of the Black Cat Tavern in 1967. While PRIDE ceased in 1968, The Los Angeles Advocate would go on to be its own independent publication, renamed simply The Advocate in 1969.
