The National Socialist League (NSL) was a Los Angeles based organization of gay nazis from the 1970s to the mid-1980s. NSL's main goal was to promote both (certain) gay rights and national socialist ideology. It was founded in the early 1970s by Jim Cherry and was taken over by Russell R. Veh (pseudonym Russell R. Patton) in 1974. Though starting from Los Angeles, NSL opened chapters in cities throughout the United States. The NSL published flyers and periodicals, mailed radical right-wing greeting cards, organized nazi film screenings and tried to get involved in gay activism. However the organization was not well received by the community and Russell Veh was forced to move out of Los Angeles (Echo Park) in 1980 and to thereafter hide his place of residence.
The NSL published the quarterly periodical NS Kampfruf until 1974 when the name changed to NS Mobilizer. The publications contain self-written short articles about anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, anti-communism, historical misrepresentation, current political nazi topics and "hero" worship. Besides the NSL, Russell Veh also ran World Service, a mail order firm that sold nazi propaganda material, books and films including those about anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and the Holocaust denial. The NSL periodical was later continued under the name Race and Nation by the World Service.
