History -

The Bay Times in 1978 became the first LGBT newspaper in California, and among the first in the world, to be jointly and equally produced by lesbians and  gay men. We honor our history and the paper’s ability to build and strengthen unity in our community. The Bay Times is the only LGBT newspaper in San Francisco, since its origin and until the present day, to have always been 100% LGBT funded and owned. The Bay Times has never been owned, in whole or in part, by anyone who is not LGBT identified.

Today, the Bay Times Media Company is a multi-platform business, offering services to readers and advertisers through print media, online, social media, e-mail distribution capabilities and event opportunities. You are welcome to inquire about how to use one, several or all of our services designed to reach the LGBT community of the Bay Area and beyond.

The Bay Times Media Company works with businesses of all sizes, including individual entrepreneurs, small to medium companies, corporations and non-profit organizations.
