The San Francisco Bay Times is a free weekly LGBT newspaper in San Francisco, California that started as Coming Up! in October 1979. Coming Up! was billed as "the gay lesbian newspaper and calendar of events for the Bay Area."[2][3]

In 1988, Coming Up! changed its name to San Francisco Bay Times. The name Coming Up! (which actually pre-dated by several months the release of the Paul McCartney song of the same name[4]) now refers to the Bay Times weekly events calendar.[5]

In June 2011, longtime publisher Kim Corsaro stepped down, with Betty Sullivan of LGBT listserve group Betty's List, and her partner Jennifer Viegas, taking over management of the paper.[6]

The Bay Times provides news and information of interest to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community in the San Francisco Bay Area. It includes book and music reviews, lists upcoming events in the area in addition to art, entertainment and social issues of interest to readers including news on health and politics.[citation needed]
