The Homosexual Information Center (HIC), is a nonprofit organization committed to gathering and disseminating information and data to the public regarding all aspects of homosexuality. It was founded in the late 1960s by the Tangent Group, which in 1965 formally split from ONE, Incorporated, one of the first gay rights organizations in the United States. The collection consists of alphabetical subject files containing documents and records created and disseminated by a wide range of social and political organizations, including local organizations in Los Angeles, national organizations, and international organizations. Various topics relevant to the homosexual community in the late 20th century are represented in the collection, especially the AIDS epidemic, HIC's interactions with smaller community and religious groups, and numerous political issues.
