The Bay Area Reporter turns 50 next month.

The Bay Area Reporter will mark its 50th anniversary next month and we want to hear from you, our readers.

We're inviting readers to send in brief emails about what the San Francisco Bay Area's leading LGBTQ newspaper means to you. Was there a particular story that grabbed your attention or spurred you to action? Why is a publication devoted to covering the queer community important to you?

Send in your comments and include your name and a daytime phone, the latter for verification only. You can also send in a photo of yourself. Email to with BAR 50 in the subject line. Please try to keep your comments to 150-200 words.

The deadline for submissions is March 25. The B.A.R.'s special 50th anniversary issue will be published April 1 (no foolin').

Help keep the Bay Area Reporter going in these tough times. To support local, independent, LGBTQ journalism, consider becoming a BAR member.
