This magazine touts itself as the world's biggest gay magazine, but every issue is about the UK scene ONLY. THERE AREN't enough people in the UK to make this the world's biggest gay magazine even assuming every one of them subscribes. There is no international component to this magazine. Just skip it and move on to another choice. Don't throw your money away unless you live in the UK...
I read the description and downloaded it even though the app photo was less than impressive. Then I saw all the covers...how can this tag claim to be serious when it is rehash of the gay mags of yesteryear? Gay men have evolved and those of us who are muscular do not need a gay men's mag to have hookers on the cover. Too bad the editors offered such promise in the pitch but ruined it with the presentation.
Great content, pictures, and truly great articles about living queer in the UK, but connecting is usually a problem.
While most publications strive to be forward in their publishing, this magazine fails flatly. New issues typically arrive 15-20 days before the next month. This publication arrives usually 5/6 day within the month. Not a good model.
Need more pages only 32 a very short magazine!
This app never works
I mean who doesn't love to read about sex. I also understand the importance or awareness of HIV testing, but when it comes to most of the pages. It doesn't need to be so. Maybe three good articles and the rest of the 49 pages are about HIV testing, for $3.00 it just depends on you.
This magazine is AMAZING ... in that it purports to be "The Fit and Sexy Gay Mag," when nearly every page of the magazine is an advertisement or article encouraging testing/treatment/prevention of HIV and a variety of sexually transmitted diseases ("STDs"). Add to that the two feature articles about HIV. Then, add the "iListings": page after page of support groups, drop-in clinics, helplines, and, oh yeah, some hospitals — all with a focus on HIV/STD risks. There is one paragraph that mentions exercise as a positive thing, but no exercise or fitness recommendations or demonstrations. Add to those downers the perhaps unintentionally fortunate fact that the app crashes frequently, and, well, you get the picture. If you don't, let me draw it for you, verbally: "sex=disease / STD testing=fitness." Roughly 46 of this mag's 58 pages will hammer that home to you. Get it? (You will, if you have sex.)
