Out Magazine...

Is there a reason it's not talked about much on the DL?

I can't recall a single thread about it in over a decade of DL history.

Whoops! I wasn't done with the poll & accidently posted the thread. Sorry about that zinger of a poll guys.

It is a garbage dumpster magazine, and only a moron would start a thread about it

I subscribed to it in once in 2002 and it never stopped coming for twenty years.... I moved and it still kept coming to the new place. Finally, after my recent move it seems like they finally stopped.

I subscribed for a year or two after the started and it wasn’t that great.

Could we talk about Outweek magazine instead? That was a great magazine and how I met my wife.

R4 Didn't the DL have you listed as dead in a recent thread?

It's shitty and awful, OP. It was never good.

Advocate was good for a long stretch of time until it essentially became Out.

While I was busy at a conference someone decided to post that I had died R4, but rumors of my demise were greatly exaggerated.

Were you also at a women’s rights conference?

I read those magazine maybe 25 years ago. They were so bad and clearly aimed at a very specific market of gays. So many ads for bud light, jewelry for men, aids meds and gay cruises. It felt super femmy and didn't resonate with me.

I'm not sure how many of the older threads are still around, but we used to have our share of former contributors to both Out and The Advocate.

DL is an offshoot of Out magazine. I don’t remember how they were connected, but originally, if you went to out.com, it led you Datalounge. Look at the bottom of the archived page from 1996. It’s got a MEDIAPOLIS link. They were the same company back in the day.

I bought something a couple years ago, and I keep getting OUT every month. For a while it was all trans, lesbians and black trans and black lesbians. Now, it's a bit more balanced, but still not terribly entertaining.
