Los Angeles: The Tide Collective, 1974. Magazine. 28p. includes covers, 8.5x11 inches, illustrations, resources, poetry, news, events, ads, very good magazine in stapled pictorial wraps, staining at edges.
After a short run as The Tide, the magazine adds "Lesbian" back into the title. AKA The Tide. This was the first national lesbian-oriented newspaper in the US. It began in 1971 as a newsletter for the Los Angeles chapter of the Daughters of Bilitis but the editor Jeanne Cordova and other editorial staff decided to take a more radical stance and split from the DOB in December of 1972. They toyed with renaming the magazine/newspaper simply The Tide in 1973 but returned almost immediately to Lesbian Tide.
