About

Founded in 2012, Frontiers Awareness & Education Foundation is the non-profit arm of Frontiers Media LLC. The organization was developed to promote and encourage the continuing and future inclusion of LGBT issues of interest and concern in publishing, journalism, communications and multimedia.

While breaking news about LGBT issues may now be covered by mainstream media, the stories often lack nuance, and historical and substantive context. Additionally, at a time of transition for many media outlets, there are limited opportunities for future leaders, writers and producers to acquire basic training and experience to develop this depth of understanding in a safe environment.

Frontiers magazine has been widely considered “the LGBT publication of record” for Los Angeles County for more than 30 years. And while the Frontiers Awareness & Education Foundation is a separate fiscal entity, the foundation enables prospective leaders and writers to gain invaluable “learn by doing” experience under the guidance of respected mentors utilizing the resources of Frontiers Media. Special attention is given to supporting writers from under-represented communities that struggle with mainstream media’s portrayal and/or inclusion of topics and news stories of interest and importance to them.  The intention is to help the leaders and writers learn how to effectively contribute to the LGBT community.
