Speaking of interesting source material, Tim Campbell recently sent me the following link: Minnesota Reflections, Minnesota Digital Library search "Minnesota Newspapers Collection ". Kathy Robbins at the Tretter Collection says the order of the issues is not very intuitive, but you can do various searches. See Blog by Tim Campbell, "GLC Voice Headlines," glcvoice.blogspot.com - Headlines of news articles and briefs in the GLC Voice newspaper from 1979 to 1992 in chronological order. The GLC Voice newspaper served gays, lesbians and civilized others in the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas. The press run was 15,000 copies twice monthly. 11" x 15" format. Free copies were placed in racks in public buildings, university campuses, restaurants and gay bars throughout central Twin Cities. Also see Blog by "Tim Campbell speaks out," timcampbellxyx.blogspot.com - Articles and photos on a variety of topics by Tim Campbell, former publisher and editor of the GLC Voice Newspaper published in Minneapolis from 1979 through 1992 for the gay community.
Also in the blog post by Jim Burroway, "The Daily Agenda for Sunday, August 10," boxturtlebulletin.com posted Aug. 10, 2014 was a birthday link to Andrew Sullivan: born 1963, who is rare gay conservative like the former OSU Professor W. Dorr Legg, who was a homophile movement activist in the 1950s and the founder of the present-day Log Cabin Republicans gay political group.
Finally, a Portland, Oregon gay newspaper reporter described how his college search did not include considering the LGBTQ friendliness of each school and he noted how PQ had previously reported "Portland State was recognized as one of the top 25 LGBT friendly colleges in America, according to the Campus Pride Campus Climate Index." (See TJ Acena, PQ Monthly, "So What Universities are Friendliest to Queer Kids?," pqmonthly.com posted Aug. 8, 2014 and also see previous post OSU topped by University of Oregon in 'party school' ranking (8/7/14))
These types of school rankings are always fun entertainment, but they inevitably leave out many good schools because the rankings are usually heavily biased by how enthusiastic the students and staff members of each school are in organizing support for the groups and filling out the surveys used to rank colleges. In my experience, this can vary greatly from year to year, based on the students and staff involved, even though the actual quality of the school hasn't changed.
