Mark Hundahl, the straight co-owner of the Los Angeles-based LGBT publication Frontiers, died of cancer early Thursday morning, Dec. 27. He was 61.
“Those who knew us well and experienced how we worked together called us ‘the odd couple,’” said David Stern, Frontiers publisher and Hundahl’s longtime friend and business partner, who’s been running the magazine for the past four years. “I’m the eternal optimist, always seeing the glass half-full. Mark, on the other hand, was more like, ‘Where’s the glass? There’s water everywhere.’ He always saw that you could either ride its wave or possibly drown in it. We always had each other’s back, and we never let each other drown.”
