Summary: "The year was 1994. It was the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and, as luck would have it, the year in which a new magazine called The Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review was publishing its first issue. The fact that The G&LR's first year coincided with Stonewall's 25th forever joined the magazine's history with the founding event of the modern LGBT movement. This book commemorates The G&LR's 25th birthday with a collection of relevant articles selected from its 136 issues"--Back cover.Supplement to: Gay & lesbian review worldwide.
