Bay Area Reporter | 14458
Bay Area Reporter is celebrating its 40th birthday.
“If San Francisco is the national epicenter of gay culture, then the Bay Area Reporter newspaper is the pinpoint within it – the place to discover what matters most to the gay folks living within the most influential gay city in America,” writes the San Francisco Gate.
This year, the BAR officially hits middle age. After 40 years of covering what was then known as the gay liberation movement, from early police harassment, to political efforts to ban gay teachers, the City Hall assassinations, the AIDS epidemic and now marriage equality, the free weekly paper is taking a pause to celebrate its evolution as the USA’s longest continuously published gay newspaper.
