OFM (OUT FRONT Magazine) was founded in 1976 by Phil Price. Since then, no other queer media has served the LGBTQ community with such dedication. Price outlined his mission in the first issue of OFM: “Out Front will cater to the needs and desires of gays in the area and will feature articles, thought-provoking editorial, the latest news, and exciting photography.” When Price passed away in 1993, he left the company in the hands of Jay Klein and Greg Montoya, who carried on his vision until 2012.
In late January 2012, Colorado native Jerry Cunningham and his partner, JC McDonald, acquired OUT FRONT and its parent company, Q Publishing.
Taking the magazine to new heights after an unpredictable pandemic year, Maggie Philips and Addison Herron-Wheeler then acquired both OUT FRONT and Q Publishing in October 2020. To reflect their desires to appeal to more unique aspects of the LGBTQ community, they rebranded to OFM and take great pride in preserving the history of the magazine throughout its new branding.
