Houston Forum & Texas Forum
1985 - 1987

 

This section of this site will feature the late 80's Houston gay newspaper Houston Forum,
begun January 1985, and consisted usually of 16 pages, 11"x15." The first publisher was
listed as Jack Adams, with Jeff Bray as Editor. By October 1985 the publishers were given
as The Texas Yuppie and Randy Brown. Brown was listed as sole publisher in October 1986.
Jeff Bray continued in various capacities, mostly as a writer.

With Issue 3-18, 5/1/87, the name was changed to Texas Forum, along with Brown buying
out the Austin Mirror and Texas Mirror, which ceased publication, leaving the Texas Forum
free to try to serve the entire state (which also had formidable coverage by This Week in
Texas, though that magazine had a different scope and format). Billie Duncan became Editor on
May 27, 1987. Other well-known people involved included Bar Wilson, Nancy Ford and Elroy Forbes.
Access to copies of this publication is courtesy of Gulf Coast Archive & Museum,
and the Botts Collection; and more will be added as available.
