Summary Information

Title: Leaping Lesbian records
Creator: The Leaping Lesbian
Inclusive dates: 1977-1980
Extent: 1.5 Linear Feet (One record center box and one manuscript box)
Abstract:
This collection contains material related to the Ann Arbor- and University of Michigan- based magazine the Leaping Lesbian, which grew from a local to national profile over the course of its publication. Although the records contain little information on the magazine's administrators, they provide a descriptive view of both the local and national lesbian community. The publications themselves reflect these communities through submitted articles, letters to the editor and news releases. Business correspondence vividly portrays the growing network of lesbian and women's enterprises in the late 1970s. And personal correspondence shows the emergence of a similar network within the social community.
