Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 01, 2015
QVegas Magazine, the leading LGBTQ publication serving Las Vegas, announced today that the publication will become all digital effective with the January 2015 issue. Over the past two years, the magazine has continually adapted to digital formats, including web, iPhone® and iPad® apps, and a social media edition for Facebook.
“We see a growing trend in both advertiser and reader preference for online,” said Russ White, publisher of QVegas Magazine. “One of the reasons I acquired QVegas in 2012 was to steward a transition to digital format. I’ve been doing digital publishing most of my career, and the time is right to re-think what digital publishing means to both advertisers and consumers.” White has a 20+ year history in Silicon Valley, working for hi-tech companies including @Home Network and Apple, Inc.
The January 2015 Health & Fitness issue features an interview with gay YouTube fitness celebrity Davey Wavey, along with other articles including PrEP HIV prevention, mental health disorders, and same-sex fertility treatments.
Always with a Vegas focus, the issue features exclusive interviews with RuPaul’s Drag Race performers including Courtney Act, Sharon Needles, Manila Luzon, Ivy Winters, Bianca Del Rio, and hostess Michelle Visage. RuPaul’s Drag Race Battle of the Seasons kicks off a four month international tour in Las Vegas at the House of Blues on February 1. Also included in this month’s issue is an interview with DJ Tracy Young who will be spinning at Revo Sundays on MLK weekend at The Mirage Hotel & Casino.
“We’ve established a strong track record in original content over the past few months,” said Garrett Pattiani, Associate Publisher of QVegas and co-founder of Gay.Vegas. “Living in the City of Entertainment gives us unprecedented access to celebrity talent, including international headliners and local celebrities.”
Digital offerings will continue to grow, offering advertisers greater reach and readers more options in how they view content with an innovative emphasis on mobile technologies.
Always a community partner, QVegas and Gay.Vegas continue to support local charities and organizations, including The Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada, Aid for AIDS Nevada, Golden Rainbow, The Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Human Rights Campaign, and Mondays Dark.
