BAGL newsletter [undated issue]

San Francisco: BAGL, [1976?]. Single 8.5x14 inch mimeographed sheet printed both sides, BAGL Newsletter at top, mild wear and fold crease.

Undated and unnumbered but likely November 1976 as Howard Wallace split off from BAGL and formed Gay ACtion Caucus. The issue consists wholly of a proposal for moving in a new direction (A statement from the Gay Action Caucus) and a four-point discussion of the reasons behind the change.
BAGL was founded in 1975 by former members of the Socialist Workers Party, primarily Howard Wallace, who, in 2004, described the organization as follows: "In 1975, two other people and I initiated an organization called Bay-Area Gay Liberation (BAGL). Its aims were to advance lesbian and gay liberation by reaching out to potential allies within the labor movement, the feminist movement and movements of people of color and national minorities." BAGL split in the late 70s into an ultra-left faction and a group which left to form the SF Gay Democratic Club (now the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club). No copies located in OCLC as of 9/2015.
