A treasure trove of queer publications from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s are now available through Reveal Digital’s open access collection “Independent Voices.” Check out this JSTOR article for some starting points."Fifty years ago, when a popular New York gay bar called the Stonewall Inn was raided by police, patrons fought back. The moment came to represent the beginning of the modern LGBTQ movement, but as Jules Gleeson explains, the fight for LGBTQ civil rights had actually been building for decades. Evidence of the emotional richness of this movement, from joy to righteous anger, can be found in the many LGBTQ publications, both pre- and post-Stonewall uprising, digitized by Reveal Digital in their Independent Voices collection. The LGBTQ series—which is open access and freely available to all—is a tremendous resource for scholars of LGBTQ history and the curious casual reader alike."
