In 1975, the Washington Area Gay Community Council (WAGCC), an alliance of businesses, community organizations, and churches published the first local guide to the community. The publication, Just Us, appeared in the autumn of 1975 and was edited by Cade Ware. WAGCC offices were in the Community Building at 1724 20th St NW. Just Us is displayed with the kind permission of Mr Deacon Maccubbin, former president of WAGCC. This first community guide appeared six years after Stonewall and fourteen years after the Mattachine Society of Washington formed.
Just Us is a snapshot of major parts of the local GLBT community. Edited by Cade Ware, with articles by David Aiken (chairperson of WAGCC at the time of the publication), Chris Schemering, Perrin Shafer, Eva Freund, and members of the Washington Free Clinic, the directory also represents the work and thought of important founding members of our community.
