ONE INSTITUTE QUARTERLY: HOMOPHILE STUDIES.
Since its founding in 1955, the ONE Institute of Los Angeles has been a cornerstone institution for gay research. In 1956 the Institute offered the first college-level course on homosexuality from a gay-affirmative perspective on the premise that gay men and lesbians familiar with their group history, sociology, and anthropology could more effectively fight for their civil rights. Under the banner "homophile studies," the Institute's interdisciplinary curriculum challenged deeply embedded academic biases against homosexuality, laying the groundwork for present-day gay studies in universities across the country.
