    Historical Note

    The Forum was a bi-weekly newsmagazine of Southern California's gay and lesbian community. " The Forum is frankly designed to report primarily on news of the gay community, because we feel this minority group is making news which is not being adequately reported elsewhere, and because it constitutes a market of growing economic importance." The Forum's other declared purpose was to build a readership described as "concerned, liberal, and young in spirit, without regard to sex or sexual orientation." The Forum published only two issues in 1974.
