Gay Community News Photograph Collection


Gay Community News Photograph Collection


Gay Community News was a weekly journal published in Boston from 1973 to 1992 by the Bromfield Street Educational Foundation. It was an important resource for the LGBT community, reporting a wide variety of LGBT related news.

The GCN photograph collection housed at The History Project in Boston, MA consists of approximately 1500 photographs, most of which are black and white prints. The photographs were taken for use in the journal, many appearing in the publication, and donated to The History Project after the closure of the journal. History Project staff members were responsible for creating three series of photographs, categorizing the images by 1. Organizations, 2. People, and 3. Demonstrations. The History Project also houses a complete run of the journal Gay Community News.

A selection of the photographs from the Organizations series is available on this Omeka site. The photographs are from a wide variety of organization in the Boston area, ranging from protest groups, to musical groups, to political groups, to theater groups. The entire Organizations series has been digitized and may be available through email by contacting The History Project at
