In a Gawker post entitled, "Freelancers Say Out, Advocate Not Paying Writers," a few disgruntled freelance writers are accusing the two biggest (only?) gay magazines in the country, after Details, of not paying up.
One writer who has waited for 7 months so far for his money is considering small claims court. Another says that the publisher is not getting back to him even though the magazine has published 3 of his stories without payment.
The Advocate is undergoing some sort of restructuring and I’ve never gotten paid for [my] columns…
Paul Colichman, the head of Regent Media, was poised to become the gay Citizen Kane in 2007 when he bought Planet Out’s print properties for a couple million dollars. Since then, all but Out have folded, including Out Traveler, Freshmen, Men and, most recently, Unzipped. (The Advocate doesn’t exist in print except as an insert in Out.)
I don’t think gay print is dead. I just think we need a do-over. Maybe I’ll start a magazine. ‘Becky.’ Or ‘Esophagus.’

Based on how sad and alone their pictures make me feel, I'm awarding the gold medal in boyfriend self-portraits to Colin Quinn and Oisín Share from Manchester, England.
It turns out that 17-year-old "Hockey Kid Mikey" is really a 48-year-old man with a twisted hobby. This list of people he duped includes Outsports.com, Ben & Dave's Podcast, thousands of devoted readers...and me.
