Cover of first issue of gay magazine Christopher Street, dated July 1, 1976.


Presumably a much-reduced scan of the cover; it is certainly an accurate, reduced reproduction, but who made the scan seems to be lost in history (and irrelevant, since there is no copyrightable creativity in a reduced scan of a 2-dimensional document).


Christopher Street (magazine)

Portion used

Only the cover.

Low resolution?


Purpose of use

As an illustration for Christopher Street (magazine)


There seems to be no way to illustrate a magazine without showing some of its content; since Christopher Street was founded in 1976, no issue would be old enough to be public domain. Picture of first issue seems a particularly appropriate illustration. The magazine is defunct (last issue was in 1995), so there is no obvious place to request explicit permission to use this.

Other information

An earlier version of this page summary refers (without context) to; my computer won't view it, so I don't know why this PDF was referenced. Might be where someone found the scan.
