Advocate Celebrates 40 Years

ellen.jpegAfter covering milestones in the gay, lesbian and transgendered community for years, it’s time for The Advocate to turn the page on a milestone of its own.

The weekly mag has turned 40 and will celebrate its anniversary tonight in West Hollywood with a bash at Republic on La Cienega.

Some famous faces will help the mag toast their big night including a host committee that includes Ellen DeGeneres, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Sgt. Eric Alva, Bill Maher, T.R. Knight, John Stamos, Jane Lyncy, Julian McMahon, Heather Matarazzo, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

Congrats to the editors and all the gays who have helped keep The Advocate informed. For a survey of exactly how far they’ve come, the 40th anniversary edition is on newsstands now.
