This page contains a small collection of direct links to historical LGBT newspapers, magazines, newsletters, and the like. Always a work in progress. Email me at grackleweb@gmail.com if you have any contributions or questions.

Almost all of the trans links will mention crossdressers, transvestites, impersonators/mimics, drag queens/kings, sissies, and more. Many of gender terms and categories we have now didn't exist, at least not in their modern form, and labels were blurrier. Newsletters and magazines were often advertised for both trans people and crossdressers, and many people considered themselves both, so I'm unable to separate them into distinct categories.

I don't endorse every opinion in these magazines, obviously.
They may contain triggering, offensive, or sexual content.
