Boston Gayline: Gay Guide to Boston (1972)
The Gay Guide to Boston provided lists of gay-friendly bars, restaurants, cinemas, cruising areas, and baths, as well information on upcoming gay events and Boston gay organizations, ranging from health services to phone lines and student support groups. The Boston Gayline was published by the Homophile Union of Boston, a civil rights and service organization for Boston-area gay people. HUB was established in 1968 to promote education about gay issues, assist individuals, and work to remove legal and public discrimination against homosexuals. HUB dissolved in 1974. From the William J. Canfield papers.
