The launch of any new publication is always reason to celebrate. It’s another voice. It’s another outlet for the community to express itself. It offers new views, brings to life new visions and inspires others to do the same. It informs and entertains the public.
Factor in the added significance of Living Out as the monthly voice of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community on Long Island—one historically underserved here, especially considering gay rights icon Harvey Milk grew up in Bay Shore—and you’ve got especially good reason to celebrate.
Living Out’s second issue is currently on stands now and is packed with GLBT news and features, spanning personal tales from Hurricane Sandy, travel, health, music and movie reviews and food recommendations to the cover story, an insightful interview with comedian and Celebrity Apprentice alum Lisa Lampanelli. We suggest you grab a copy before they’re all gone!
We at the Press are proud to play a role, however minimal, in Living Out’s creation. Our parent company Morey Publishing, LLC, under its custom publishing arm Private Label, publishes and distributes Living Out. Under the direction of Living Out Publisher David Kilmnick, chief executive officer at the Long Island Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) Services Network, Living Out’s talented team provides the content. Our editorial and production crew assists in the layout, design and copyediting.
Heading Living Out’s staff is Meryl Lumba, its editor; Jeff Main, its art director; and Andrew Schleider, its advertising director.
We look forward to many, many years of great coverage—we know the Island surely needs it.
The Press congratulates the staff of Long Island’s new GLBT publication, Living Out!
