    Historical Note

    First Tuesday (also referred to on its early mailings as The Los Angeles Gay Community Forum for Information and Communication) was an informal meeting group of gay men and lesbian women that met--when sponsored by a participating organization--on the first Tuesday of a given month. Meetings were social occasions that often involved cocktails and dinner followed by an open forum where groups were invited to share general information "about their current activities and upcoming events and shared concerns." First Tuesday meetings sometimes served as fundraisers, or to provide a forum for dealing with an immediate issue affecting the Los Angeles gay and lesbian community.
