Bay Area Reporter announces its historic 50th anniversary edition

Since 1971 the Bay Area Reporter has been writing the first draft of LGBTQ history.

As the community's undisputed newspaper of record, we're excited to announce our historic 50th anniversary edition to be published on Thursday, April 1.

Founded in 1971, the Bay Area Reporter is regarded for practicing advocacy journalism and producing original reporting on news and culture from an LGBTQ perspective -- from the birth of the LGBTQ rights movement all the way to achieving marriage equality and advocating for transgender rights. 

Our political coverage started when Harvey Milk was our first political columnist before he was elected supervisor.

The BAR was the first LGBT community publication to unapologetically feature the leather community with a regular column by the legendary Marcus Hernandez (Mr. Marcus), and the first to publish obituaries with photos during the AIDS crisis.

Our anniversary issue will include highlights of our five-decade history and include a timeline of our impactful coverage of LGBTQ rights from the early-1970's to the present time.

Advertising space reservations for this special anniversary edition are now being accepted. To reserve space or request further information, call Scott Wazlowski at 415-829-8937 or email

Deadline to reserve space will be 12 p.m. Thursday, March 25.
