In this difficult economy, it’s never good news when a large company has to close its doors.
As you may already know, 411 Magazine and South Florida Blade closed their doors last weekend and all Window Media publications, including Washington Blade, Southern Voice and David Magazine have met a similar fate, leaving some LGBT communities with few alternatives when seeking news and information. This certainly comes as a shock, particularly for their employees who have dedicated their time and talents to supporting our community. Over the past few years I have developed a deep respect for many of the dedicated employees at both Florida publications and wish them the very best in their future endeavors.
Hotspots Magazine, Latino Boys Magazine, 411 Magazine and South Florida Blade have shared billing as sponsors in numerous events over the last eight years, such as Pride South Florida, St. Pete Pride, Stonewall Street Festival and Equality Florida to name a few. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to share this hefty responsibility with them and have enjoyed their contribution to the collective voice of the gay community.
While LGBT publications often come and go, we are proud that for over three years Latino Boys Magazine has remained committed to the Latino gay community through its various transitions and tough economic times. LBM is currently the only publication that specifically targets the rich and diverse Latino culture. It is an important part of our family which includes:
- Hotspots – Florida’s largest gay publication for over 25 years
- Edge Media – The largest network of local GLBT news and entertainment portals in the world
- Video Marketing Partners – A high-quality video marketing firm that offers complete services from production to online publishing
- After Dark – A premier adult website coming soon that will contain what our readers didn’t see in our printed publications and much more
Together, we will continue to grow and evolve with our vibrant LGBT community and want to assure our readers and advertisers of our continued presence and dedication to our community. We know that our future depends on the success of our customers and our community organizations; that’s not an advertising slogan - it is the foundation on which we continue to build our community.
