The Advocate’s Matthew Breen Headed to Brooklyn

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.

Kerry Eleveld Rejoins The Advocate to Cover Landmark Supreme Court LGBT Cases

Former Advocate Washington correspondent Kerry Eleveld is rejoining the mag as a special correspodent to bolster coverage of the upcoming Supreme Court battles over Prop. 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act.

“We’re very excited to have Kerry Eleveld reporting for us during this crucial moment for LGBT rights,” says Advocate EIC Matthew Breen. “The Supreme Court’s decisions on the Prop. 8 and DOMA cases are going to have lasting effect on the lives of millions of Americans, and Eleveld’s insights into LGBT rights and her history as an award-winning reporter for The Advocate made her an ideal special correspondent to have on the case.”

Eleveld will have her hands full, as oral arguments for both cases are set to begin next week.

The Advocate Returns to Newsstands

Since 2010, the print version of The Advocate has been circulating on a subscription basis only. But beginning January 15 at Barnes & Noble, Hastings and other outlets, the monthly publication will be back on newsstands. Per today’s announcement:

“Due to both reader and advertiser demand, we are thrilled to bring The Advocate print edition back to newsstands in 2013,” said editor-in-chief Matthew Breen and executive vice president publishing Joe Landry in a joint statement. “We remain committed to providing timely and in-depth reporting of issues important to the LGBT community and our community allies, as well as providing the best media outlet for businesses targeting the gay market.”

These are busy cross-platform times for The Advocate and LA parent HereMedia. Last month, Here TV launched The Advocate’s Seat Filler, an ongoing five-minute Great White Way chronicle for the program Just Josh and streaming on websites advocate.com, OUT.com, shewired.com, gay.com and gay.net.

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.”
