Welcome to the HIC’s

Index of Historic Material

Since the 1950s, HIC founder Don Slater had been a consummate collector of materials pertaining to the history of homosexual rights in the United States. The HIC is in process of transferring these materials to the Vern and Bonnie Bullough Collection on Sex and Gender at Oviatt Library of the California State University, Northridge.
As we processes this archives, select pieces will be posted here for the public to view and read. In time, we hope to secure a grant by which to digitally process the entire collection of HIC materials. Until then, your help by making a donation to the HIC will help us to protect and disseminate this information.
YOUR DONATIONS help us to get more of our historic materials online.
