San Francisco: Society for Individual Rights, 1968. Magazine. 32p. including covers, 8.5x11 inches, illustrated with photos and ads, very good magazine in stapled pictorial wraps. NB: the May issue was misnumbered 6 so this issue should have been #7 but the numbering was not corrected until August so there are two issue #8s.
Cover story of the celebration of the Fourth Anniversary of the Society. During this period the magazine was still mainly an information bsource for LGBT services, events and concerns. By the early 1970s it had begun to rely more on physique photography. S.I.R. was an extremely important homophile organization in the 1960s-70s and "Vector" was the main gay magazine for the Bay Area during those years. The magazine began life as a newsletter in 1964, merely several folded and or stapled sheets with news and calendars. The late Sixties found the magazine concentrating more on local and national news of interest to gay men.The final years saw the magazine turn more to a standard gay men's magazine with photos of young men from around the Bay Area.
