    Administrative History

    Coast to Coast Times was a bi-monthly gay and lesbian tabloid periodical and newsmagazine based in West Hollywood, California. It was essentially a continuation of an earlier publication, Pacific Coast Times, with the title change reflecting both a change in ownership (in 1978) and a transition from a regional to a national focus in distribution and news coverage. The Pacific Coast Times was published under the corporate name Coast Press Ltd.; the Coast to Coast Times was published under Coast Times Publishing Co. Paul Nash served as one of the editors of Coast to Coast Times.
