This periodical issued by the Mattachine Society of San Francisco, under the editorship of Hal Call, is a primary source of information on the interests and attitudes of one branch of the American "homophile" movement from the mid 1950s through the mid 1960s. The primary purpose of the Review, and of the San Francisco Mattachine Society which it represented, was the education of the general public, and male, adult homosexuals themselves, concerning the legal problems, discrimination against, and developing lifestyles of this group. Its aim was to win acceptance of homosexuals from the heterosexual public, not necessarily its approval. It tried to draw attention to the existence of male homosexuals, and to the fact that they had problems affecting the whole society. It emphasized that the homosexual was part of this larger society, and did not seek to foster or create a separate homosexual subculture. The Review reprinted news items and magazine articles concerning male homosexuals,, often adding its own commentary. It also included some relevant fiction and poetry, and a small amount of Lesbian material. This reprinting makes available to students and scholars the complete twelve-year run of The Mattachine Review. 5volumes
