Dear ONE: Love & Longing in Mid-Century Queer America

Sunday, October 13

Dear ONE: Love & Longing in Mid-Century Queer America, by Josh Irving Gershick, illuminates the lives of ordinary Queer Americans as recounted through letters written between 1953 and 1965, to L.A.’s ONE Magazine, the first openly gay & lesbian periodical in the United States. Looking for love, friendship, or understanding, they wrote of loneliness and longing, of joy and fulfillment, and of their daily lives, hidden from history. Adapted from material from the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries, the largest repository of LGBTQ materials in the world. Featuring Michelle Bonilla, Nicky Endres, Nic Few & Michael Kearns.
