Looking to keep up with GLBT culture: The Gay & Lesbian Review is for you. I recently renewed my subscription to the GLR, and I am thrilled to share it with all of you. Back in the day, I wrote a couple of book reviews for the GLR, and I am irritated with myself for letting my subscription lapse.
Publishing since 1994, the GLR is a bimonthly magazine—yes, it still appears as an actual magazine—that is dedicated to GLBT history, culture, and politics. The GLR approaches these topics with articles that come from a wide array of identity and disciplinary perspectives. It is also an excellent source for thoughtful and well-written reviews of books, plays, movies, and more. The GLR is a fantastic way to keep informed and update to date on GLBT culture generally. The GLR is delivered in a plain white envelop, so your reading remains your business.
And, here’s the best part, it is only $23 for a year of the magazine and online access and only $9.95 for online access. Consider a subscription for yourself and growing the GLBT reading community by sending one to a friend. This is a great gift idea and a great way to support the GLBT person in your life. The printed word has long served as DNA for the GLBT community, so this is an awesome way to source ourselves and each other.
While the GLR publishes as a traditional magazine, it also boasts a robust web site. Your subscription provides you access to online content, but you can also sign up for a newsletter that offers a wonderful precis of the current issue. Being able to keep up with Martha Stone and Andrew Holleran’s thoughts on GLBT culture is worth the subscription price alone.
As a good friend once taught me, you have to support the culture you want to see. We are the GLBT reading community, so think about offering your support by subscribing to The Gay & Lesbian Review today. If you check out the GLR–much less subscribe–post a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts.
