Zap published 1978
July 1978 to December 1978
The first edition of Zap was printed in July/August 1978 and available at a cost of 20p. The editorial committee was Helen Rose, Neil Matthews, Pete Kirby and Steve Ewart, who also contributed some of the articles, along with copies of articles from other publications.
Although produced at the Gay Community Centre, the editorial collective made it clear that any views expressed are not necessarily those of the Centre.
The contents of Issue One of Zap included:
Women Fight Back (following an incident at the Greyhound) (article reprinted separately, see 'memory' by Helen Rose.)
Thoughts and Impressions
The right to be ourselves
Glad to be Gay
Beware the Trendy Liberal
Gay Activists Alliance
