Advocate Goes Inside Out
Rather clearly, gay-oriented media are having the same troubles as other titles for the same reasons: Increased costs, loss of advertising revenues, and competition from the Internet chief among them.
One imagines, too, that the mainstreaming of homosexuality means that there’s simply less reason to subscribe to magazines about being gay. Not only are there plenty of gay-oriented blogs, ezines, forums, and the like but gay culture is part of the larger culture now. Maybe not so much in small town America but certainly in the big cities. And, more to the point, in mainstream magazines, movies, and television shows.
