A Few Doors West of Hope

The Life and Times of Dauntless Don Slater

By Joseph Hansen



Abstract from the cover


In January, 1953, sixteen years before the Stonewall rebellion in New York, Don Slater, in Los Angeles, launched ONE, the first openly sold magazine in the United States to speak out for homosexuals. This was a bold move. Same-sex acts were outlawed in all 48 states. Putting the subject into print, and sending if through the mails, were forbidden. But Don Slater went ahead. And this was the true beginning of Gay Liberation in America.


Now, in sparkling style, award-winning novelist Joseph Hansen tells Don Slater’s story for the first time. His courage and determination against all odds will inspire you and make you proud.
