The Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide

The Gay & Lesbian Review's Mission

To provide a forum for enlightened discussion of issues and ideas of importance to lesbians and gay men; to advance gay and lesbian culture by providing a quality vehicle for its best writers and thinkers; and to educate a broader public on gay and lesbian topics.

Brief History

With the publication of the first issue in the winter of 1994, The Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review rushed into a huge vacuum in gay and lesbian literary culture -- a void that stretched all the way from The Atlantic and The New Republic toThe New York Review of Books. Nowhere in Gaydom was there a journal for the literate non-specialist, offering the best writing and thinking our culture had to offer, covering a wide range of topics, handsomely produced, and always a pleasure to read.

About the Magazine

Each issue of The G&LR is organized around a theme, such as "The Science of Homosexuality," "Human Rights around the World," and "Virtual Communities." The goal is always to cover a topic from a range of perspectives by featuring a number of the leading contributors in the field. Each issue includes about a half-dozen essays and a larger number of book reviews, plus a movie review or two. A few poems also appear in each issue, along with letters to the editor, artists' profiles, and an international forum.

The importance of The G&LR as a national forum was recognized by Library Journal after our first year of publication, which dubbed us "the journal of record" for the discussion of gay and lesbian topics. The New York Times ran a major feature article on the magazine, highlighting its role as a major force in current gay and lesbian intellectual life.
