Kevin Naff Named New Editor of Genre

genre_2_2Just a week ago, Washington Blade editor was penning nonsense rants against Queerty on the Blade’s blog. That very same week, we learned that Neil Boulton, editor of the ‘sometimes we print, sometimes we don’t’ magazine Genre, had moved on to greener pastures. Improbably, these two stories of gay media stupidity decided to come together and form a delicious gay media stupidity sandwich, much to our delight. It’s like peanut butter & jelly slathered on top of art directed pectorals that will probably only be delivered part the time and will hopefully be filled with angry rants against Queerty! Happy day!

The Washington Blade reports on its old boss’ shipping off to sea:

“Washington Blade editor Kevin Naff has been named editor-in-chief of Genre Magazine, according to William Kapfer, co-president of Window Media, parent company for both publications.

Naff will continue in his position at the Blade while also directing editorial operations at the magazine.

Naff will join Genre after more than three years as editor of the Blade.

“Kevin brings a real passion for LGBT journalism, and an appreciation for the vital role Window Media’s collection of print and digital assets bring to the community,” Kapfer said. “This appointment underscores Genre’s mission to continue to produce the top quality magazine in our category—while continuing to provide readers with easily accessible, fresh, original content across our suite of integrated media channels.”

“I’m excited to join the team at Genre and to help build on the magazine’s colorful history,” Naff said. “I look forward to advancing Genre’s mission, while also celebrating this year the Blade’s 40th year as the nation’s leading LGBT news source.”
