About this event

Dear ONE: Love & Longing in Mid-Century Queer America, by Joshua Irving Gershick, illuminates the lives of ordinary Queer Americans as recounted through letters written between 1953 and 1965, to L.A.’s ONE Magazine, the first openly gay & lesbian periodical in the United States. Looking for love, friendship or understanding, they wrote of loneliness and longing, of joy and fulfillment, and of their daily lives, hidden from history. Adapted from material from the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries, the largest repository of LGBTQ materials in the world.

“Dear ONE” will be presented as a live, staged production and streamed to a virtual audience. Net proceeds will go to support the work of the Audre Lorde Project and Legal Momentum.

Net proceeds of "Dear ONE" will go to support the work of the Audre Lorde Project. The Audre Lorde Project is a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans and Gender Non Conforming People of Color center for community organizing, focusing on the New York City area.
