The Tangent Group is the registered d.b.a. of the Homosexual Information Center [HIC], an independent nonprofit organization devoted to a continuing inquiry into the nature, circumstances, and social issues of homosexuality. The HIC was established in 1965 by a majority of the legally elected board members of ONE, Incorporated and was founded in Los Angeles, California in 1968 by Don Slater, Tony Reyes, Billy Glover, and Jim Schneider.
HIC’s objective is clarification and eventual settlement of the issues surrounding homosexual persons and behavior. Our procedure is to generate, gather, organize, make available, and broadcast ideas between and among homosexual and non-homosexual people regarding the facts and opinions regarding human sexuality.
Please join our endeavor to secure social equality for all persons regardless of sexual orientation and to preserve the history and heritage of those people so that they in turn can best contribute to the vitality of a healthy society.
