Database Trial – LGBT Magazine Archive

Our second database trial this Spring is the LGBT Magazine Archive.

Archival runs of 26 of the most influential, longest-running serial publications covering LGBT interests. Includes the pre-eminent US and UK titles – The Advocate and Gay Times, respectively. Chronicles more than six decades of the history and culture of the LGBT community. In addition to LGBT/gender/sexuality studies, this material also serves related disciplines such as sociology, political science, psychology, health, and the arts. Some publications may contain explicit content.

To begin searching go to https://trials.proquest.com/access?token=PXI9Y8LR6O1BP3OI8KJV follow the login procedure and then the hyperlink to the database. Access is via IP address and the trial runs to 31st May 2019.

Please note that the LGBT Magazine Archive is still in development so not all content is currently available. Eleven of the Magazines have been loaded so far with the others being added over the next few months.
