Abstract:

The Gay Student Alliance (GSA) was established at the University of Maryland in the 1970s as the successor of the Student Homophile Association (SHA). This collection contains newspaper clippings and editorials from the Diamondback chronicling the campus response to the gay community during the 1970s. Of particular note are legal documents and correspondence related to the SHA's 1971 suit against the Board of Regents for denying the organization funds allocated to it by the Student Government Association. Also included are press releases, brochures, and correspondence related to special events or university policies that affected gay students on campus, as well as copies of the GSA newsletter Outfront.
