Christopher Street was a gay-oriented magazine published in New York City, New York. Known both for its serious discussion of issues within the gay community and its satire of anti-gay criticism, it was one of the two most widely-read gay-issues publications in the United States. Christopher Street covered politics and culture and its aim was to become a gay equivalent of The New Yorker.
The magazine featured original fiction from such notable authors as Andrew Holleran, as well as emerging gay writers such as Christopher Bram, Allen Barnett, Scott Heim, Patrick Merla and Matthew Stadler.
First published in July 1976, Christopher Street printed 231 issues before closing its doors in December 1995.
