The Advocate started out as a mimeographed newsletter, informing L.A. denizens of the latest LGBT happenings. Since then, it has grown into a glossy that boasts a heavily-trafficked website, which 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.”
