For the past two years, the Advocate has only been available by subscription. But the premiere LGBT newsmagazine is returning to a bimonthly newsstand format later this month, representatives from parent company Here Media have indicated.
“Due to both reader and advertiser demand, we are thrilled to bring The Advocate print edition back to newsstands in 2013,” announced editor in chief Matthew Breen and publishing vice-president Joe Landry in a joint statement. “We remain committed to providing timely and in-depth reporting of issues important to the LGBT community and our community allies, as well as providing the best media outlet for businesses targeting the gay market.”
In his letter to the editor for the current issue, Breen says the newsstand version will “bring you more longer-form reporting, analysis, and opinion” with articles addressing “the stories that have always been of importance throughout our 45-year history, including the struggle for equal rights and the impact of the larger culture on us and vice versa.”
The Advocate returns to newsstands on January 15, 2013.
