"The data will be authoritative, and contributions from members of the community will keep it real."
With the Affordable Care Act open enrollment period upon us, Frontiers Media has crunched data from many independent organizations, polled readers and sifted through anecdotal information to create the first-of-its-kind Gay-Friendly Doctors and Hospitals Guide for Los Angeles and the surrounding area.
The annual directory will appear in the Dec. 11 issue of Frontiers magazine and in a special section of FrontiersMedia.com.
It seeks to answer ongoing questions that our readers face.
Until now, knowledge of places and providers where patients can be safe, and get the best advice on health care decisions from an LGBT perspective, has been a matter of word of mouth.
Now Frontiers readers and health care providers alike have a way to find each other both in the published print edition and the digital version, which will be updated throughout the year.
In addition to the Gay-Friendly Doctors List and hospital assessments, we’ll look into other aspects of LGBT life and health care needs, such as senior services and mental health.Special care will be paid to HIV/AIDS services, from obtaining the best care possible to the latest advice on PrEP and even the sometimes perplexing problem of finding a dentist while HIV-positive. Of course, we’ll also give advice on navigating Obamacare.
The data will be authoritative, and contributions from members of the community will keep it real.
Frontiers is the 21st century’s LGBT media company, spanning digital, mobile, print and television.

The original rainbow flag, called the Freedom Flag, was devised by Gilbert Baker in 1978. The design has undergone several revisions since its debut with 8 colored stripes, and today the most common variant consists of 6 stripes: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.
