My dissertation examines the production, reception, and transnational circulation of North American gay periodicals in the 1971-1994 period. The project discusses how gay liberation journals, gay-lifestyle, and erotic magazines shaped gay liberation movements and the formation of gay communities, networks, and identities at the local, national, and international levels.
