The “Lambda Valley Monthly” (1985-1988) was a continuation of the “Le-Hi-Ho Newsletter” (1969-1985). The title change coincided with the foundation of the Lambda Center, a community center for gays and lesbians located on Hamilton Street in Allentown, PA. The Lambda Center existed until the end of 1988, at which point it was transformed into the AIDS Services Center.
The Lehigh Valley Homophile Society ("Le-Hi-Ho") held its first meeting on June 22, 1969. The goal of the group was to provide social opportunities outside of the bar scene for members of the LGBT community in the Lehigh Valley. The society published monthly newsletters featuring the information relevant to the community, including social events and field trips, activist opportunities and reporting on the national and regional gay liberation movement, and eventually HIV and AIDS.
