Lesbian Herstory Archives is a magazine founded by a group of women formed from the Gay Academic Union in 1973. Lesbian Herstory strives to preserve for the future all expressions of their identity through creative expression. This archive includes: June 1975, March 1976, November 1976, February 1978, Spring 1979, July 1980, December 1981, Winter 1984, September 1986, February 1988, January 1990, June 1991, June 1992, and January 1995. Each magazine measures 8.5" x 11 and has decorated pictorial wrappers with the first two early editions being typewriter font. These newsletters serve to share various lesbian news, queer and women's organizations, recruitment for volunteers, outreach, research, and to serve as a safe creative outlet for lesbians alike. The February 1978 magazine is entirely a poetry collection about, for, and by lesbians. The content includes information from the founders as well as many submissions from the readers. One personal anecdote from the December 1981 issue reminisces on her days as a young lesbian in the 1960s and finding solace amongst elder lesbians who took her into her home as a safe space to be with her lover. The Winter 1984 titled "The International Collection" shares insight and stories from readers overseas, their challenges of coming out in small towns in many countries where social progressivism was not up to speed with the U.S. This archive is an empowering and insightful look at a marginalized group finding community through identity. Binding is tight and pages are clean. Overall in very good condition.
