It Took 5 Months, But Southern Voice Is Back. And It’s, Eh

So the new Southern Voice — under the ownership of Gaydar‘s Matt Neumann — is here, premiering on Friday after a handful of delays. It’s 32 pages. It’s glossy. And, ugh, I am really not in the mood to speak bad about another gay media outlet, but c’mon. Is there anything about this cover that says “Pick me up and read me!” No. Because in the five months since SoVo closed and re-opened, nobody there has learned anything about writing coverlines.

      “Because in the five months since SoVo closed and re-opened, nobody there has learned anything about writing coverlines.”

      Its actually an entirely different crew from what I understand. The old guard of Southern Voice are now over at Georgia Voice and were going to buy Southern Voice but the deal fell through at the last minute. Its a shame because from what I can tell at SoVO & David they have just become new brands for Gaydar which a vast disappointment to one who used to enjoy SoVo & David. Typos all over the place and just plain poorly written articles. I don’t want to harp because it is a free magazine that serves the community but it could be done much better.

      The GA Voice is a far better publication – better staff, better journalism. The folks over at the new SoVo have a knack for screwing things up (i.e. Gaydar) and for screwing over people in the community. I imagine they won’t be around for long.

      So there are two new specialty citywide print free-distribution start-ups in Atlanta? Good luck in this economy!
