A reader tipped us to a May 3 report on queerty.com. One phone call later, we’re able to confirm a few additional details related to that publication’s exclusive news break.
As of today, The Advocate editor-in-chief Matthew Breen (pictured) is under the employ of Grand Editorial and by mid-summer, will be relocated from The Advocate‘s Westwood offices to those of Grand in Brooklyn. Only he, and the magazine’s current bi-monthly print magazine efforts, will be moving away from the west coast. A staff of just over a dozen editors will remain here in LA.
Grand Editorial is run by Aaron Hicklin, EIC of Here Media sister publication Out magazine. A year ago, a similar move was made involving that publication, with the big difference being that the editorial staff was let go and rehired on a contract basis.
