Two years ago, Roy Aarons invited five Bay Area colleagues to his home for a discussion of their common concerns as gay journalists. Aarons was then the executive editor of the Oakland Tribune, the only openly gay, top-level editor at any mainstream daily newspaper in the country. This weekend, with a proud smile, Aarons moved his living room discussion to far larger quarters, with a far broader agenda. He presided over the first conference of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Assn.
