We may excuse ignorance of those general people who might want a short basic info on the movement, but glbt journalists have a duty to either not cover something or to do it competently and ethically.
How the “journalist” could make a mistake on discussing ONE Magazine is beyond understanding. What it says is that ONE was early but implies that it could not be distributed because the post office refused to allow it. NO mention of the lawsuit, and of course ONE never stopped being distributed.
A “clue” is that once again pc coverage means the first publication listed is The Ladder—which is only discussed as having been supported by ONE, Inc. and Mattachine—I am sure lesbians will like that strange discussion—it is credited with being the first national lesbian publication.
I found it difficult to surf all the listings. At least Windy City Times, Mattachine Review, Vice Versa, Philadelphia Gay News, Empty Closet, BAR, and obviously Advocate are listed—it said 10—I never got the 10th one.
So for those who think it is not necessary to talk about ONE, etc, here is proof that even lgbt journalists are ignorant on our media history.
