Advocate for the LGBT Community

The Advocate started out as a mimeographed newsletter informing L.A. denizens of the latest LGBT happenings, but has grown into an international glossy. And its heavily-trafficked website is a great place for new writers to start pitching.

Advocate.com garners a million uniques a month, and just like the print version, is always on the lookout for features, profiles, commentary and analysis that speak to the gay and lesbian community.

“We’re really the only magazine in the space. There are lesbian-specific publications, there are trans-specific publications, there are gay men-specific publications,” said editor-in-chief Matthew Breen, “but in terms of an LGBT magazine, we really don’t have competitors.”
