FOCUS, Orange County’s first gay newspaper, was published by Sam Warren founder of the Orange County Gay Community Center. The paper was supported by Christ Chapel MCC, the first gay and lesbian organization in Orange County. As a result, interspersed amongst advertisements for local gay businesses, personal articles with tongue- in-cheek titles like ‘Sodom and Granola,’ and calls for community organization and activism, FOCUS includes religious outreach and interviews with gay ministers.
