Are there any left? There's many in the UK, and they're actually good! Has the medium died off in the US?
Print media in general is dying off in the US.
I have nowhere to look at magazines anymore.
The only gay magazines we know of are the tubular ones that belong to brave gay NRA members.
OUT is still struggling along and I think there's one other one - Instinct, maybe? I have no idea how they survive. I've been receiving OUT for free for years somehow and even for free I don't read it.
Americans can read?
There was one funny moment in the unfunny Ellen sitcom where she was asking a guy in the store where the gay magazines were, he said, "in the porno section!".
Sadly that is still true, in many shops they are put on the top shelf alongside porn. It doesn't help that they have scantily clad/naked guys on there mind you. The UK ones follow the lads mags like FHM in that respect.
I admit I never really read the gay magazines. I just looked at the pictures, and I can find those same pictures at no cost on the Internet.
I think a website might be better nowadays. Is the Advocate still printing? It still might be hard to compete with the blogs, which seem to get information 24 hours before it happens.
Playgirl will print an issue and within 5 minutes the centerfold is free online. You can't blame the publications for ceasing production. It's not profitable any more.
"Print media in general is dying off in the US."
This is the one trend that I truly hate.
Another magazine, please.
Details is still available on newsstands.
You can subscribe to Details, but they send it with those stench strips -- they say they won't, but they do -- so I canceled.
Instinct is still around. They just got a new editor and it's worse (and more pointless) than ever...
Do they still have porno magazines? I thought the internet killed them off as well.
OUT and The Advocate are still around. Both are nothing more than lifestyle magazines for upscale gay men.
r10, what are "stench strips?" Do you mean cologne ads? Are you allergic or just a special snowflake?
