Publisher Joe Landry Out At Out

Less than a year after snatching EIC Aaron Hicklin from the cultured pages of BlackBook, Out publisher and senior vice-president Joe Landry has announced that he’s leaving the fag-rag.

So, where’s Landry sowing his publishing oats? BlackBook, of course. Don’t you love the rat fuck known as magazine publishing?

We asked around for a bit of explanation, but have yet to turn up anything concrete. One thing’s for sure, the formerly LA-centric Landry’s going to spending a lot of time in New York, where Blackbook and Out both have offices. If any of you kids have more information, we’ll gladly accept…

As for who will fill Landry’s seat? Your guess is as good as Out‘s – they’re apparently on the prowl.

Meanwhile, the Board of Directors got had a bit of a shake-up after Allen Morgan resigned yesterday. He’ll be replaced by Phillip Kleweno, former president of Princess Cruises. How appropriate…

(Update: FYI, Landry published all of LPI’s illustrious titles, including The Advocate, Out Traveler and HIV Plus.)

    I can’t say I’m disappointed or surprised. The magazine has sucked for quite a while, and the new (or old) layout they have for the cover is the pits.

    And I”m sick of seeing straight men I don’t care about on the cover every damn month.

    i cancelled my subscription years ago for the same reason… str8 people who pretended to be gay, str8 people who know somebody gay, str8 people who would like to know some gay people, str8 people… well, you get the idea. as if the content wasn’t slight enough as it is, who in it is ever “out” ? you can get more gay news in people mag fer chrissake.

    GENRE is a better magazine than out. But not as good as

    I find this all so confusing and boring. I could really care less who is in charge at whichever magazine. out sucks. it always has, it always will. Next.

    Maybe the new publisher can get rid of that horribel typeface they’re useing.

    Give the latest earnings projections, it is no wonder that Landry was ousted. With only a 0 – 2% cash flow projected with over 70M in revenue, PlanetOut had to make some moves in the Ivory tower. Best of luck to Landry.
