The Bay Area Reporter, founded in 1971, is San Francisco’s oldest and largest publication serving the LGBT community. In August of 2005 the newspaper launched a companion website known as EBAR.
The website’s current edition, dated June 22, 2006, includes an article by Matthew S. Bajko which focuses on the state of the LGBT community in the Central Valley. Covering LGBT growth, organizations and events, along with local politicians and the level of acceptance in the conservative valley, the article is an in depth look at the Valley’s current position in the continuing battle for LGBT civil rights.
