With The Advocate magazine launching in March, one of the best magazines for LGBTQ+ visibility, it’s been a long time coming.
The magazine’s launch was a surprise, and one that some were hesitant to embrace.
The publication has long championed the cause of inclusion, and while the magazine is mostly geared towards LGBTQ+ readers, it also has a strong presence in other areas, like film and music.
The magazine’s focus on the LGBTQ+ community has drawn praise from some.
In a 2017 interview with The Advocate, Caitlyn Jenner described the magazine as “the first magazine to really acknowledge that we’re here, and we’re not alone.”
In March, the Advocate was honored with a special award from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, and in 2017, the magazine won the GLAAD Media Award for LGBTQ-inclusive reporting.
The magazine is part of the larger push to be more inclusive in mainstream media.
In March, BuzzFeed announced that it would no longer publish an issue that included images of “the most disgusting people on the Internet,” as part of a larger push toward more inclusive content.
