This simple idea, to honor OUT/LOOK National Lesbian and Gay Quarterly 30 years after six of us sat down to plan a new magazine, has mushroomed into this website, an exhibition, a publication and several events. Some inchoate instinct back in 2015 led me to retrieve my dusty issues off a high shelf and spread them across the living room floor. The covers looked as vibrant as I remembered; I imagined them enlarged grandly on a museum wall.
