Title

THE GAY & LESBIAN BBS LIST Collection

Subject

Gay & Lesbian BBSs

Description

This .zip holds copies of THE GAY & LESBIAN BBS LIST, a monthly listing of active Gay & Lesbian BBSes. The list was maintained by Risqilly, sysop of Risqilly BBS and S-Tek BBS in Montreal, from 1985 to August 1999 (when the final edition was published). Though many of the BBSes listed are based in North America, the list did include at various points in its existence a varied list of BBSes housed outside North America.

Currently, the .ZIP archive holds 8 years of the list, from August 1992 to August 1999. However, there are significant gaps in some years, and this file may be updated to include new copies when they become available.
