The End For NEXT, FRONTIERS, Other Gay Mags Comments (0)

22.31 COVER(Image via Next)

Looks like this is the end for Next Magazine, a staple in gay publishing in NYC for as long as I've been here. (I was bummed when HX disappeared years and years ago, and still sometimes slip and call Next by that name.)

Next is one of the last in a long short tradition of gay publications, stretching back to Bob Mizer's Physique Pictorial and being heavily influenced by such '70s magazines like After Dark and Michael's Thing.

How long will gay print magazines last? 1951 through ... ? Out and The Advocate, as well as Attitude, have had their ups and downs. The death of Next—L.A.'s outstanding Frontiers and other publications are also caught up in this—is just another step toward the end.

His Body Is In WONDERLAND: Nick Jonas Gets Your GOAT Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-09-26 at 9.55.40 AM(Images via Christian Oita/Wonderland)

Nick Jonas covers Wonderland, hanging out in his boxers (not literally hanging out) inside. Rs_817x1024-160923101852-634-nick-jonas-wonderland

He talks to the mag about his hazing movie with James Franco, Goat:

I think it's a conversation that is important in this moment because there's so many of these stories in recent years of young men pushing each other to a point where it's all just so dangerous. And at the center of the film, as far as themes go, is masculinity: and what that looks like at 16, and the pressures forced onto these young men, and the stakes that become so high. So being able to tell that story in a way that feels very grounded and very real, and starting a conversation, was important.

Let's hope gay commentators can get over Nick removing his pants since anything vaguely homoerotic he does is reduced to base gay-baiting (eyeroll).

Photographer On Milo Yiannopoulos: He's Faking It; SALON On Milo Yiannopoulos: No, He's Not Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-09-22 at 10.24.13 AM(Video still via Salon)

Jill Greenberg, who accepted the assignment to shoot Milo Yiannopoulos for Out, says she thinks he's just faking his persona. Amanda Marcotte of Salon—who was on the receiving end of a lecture by Yiannopoulous during the shoot and who he later called a bitch—thinks he's deadly serious.

Check out Salon's piece on the shoot for Out here.

Regardless, Salon covered Yiannopoulous in the way Out could have and should have and did not.

Out did a huge disservice to LGBTQ people and progressives in general by choosing to present a poisonous figure as a harmless clown, and Chadwick Moore's profile was utterly neutral and banal.

We don't need that. We don't need enablers who pretend they're provocateurs, and who argue that being provocative is more important than who you're provoking and why.

Madonna For LOVE: I DON'T CONSIDER MYSELF A POP ACT Comments (0)

Bxm1fa7piiwdkpchorlpzfxkv(Madonna by Mert Alas for Love)

Mert Alas's images of Madonna and Rocco (and a bunch of skinheads) are trickling out, now that the magazine is close to dropping. Alas shot Madonna and child on the fly, leading to what look like very unstyled (though certainly Photoshopped) images.

In her interview with the magazine, Madonna tells Murray Healy:

I was already famous before social media, so for me fame isn’t the burden. Fame is the manifestation or the by-product of my work, and that was two decades before social media. Now to me the burden is people are more focused on fame than actually doing the work or being an artist. Now it’s easy to become famous. What isn’t easy is to develop and grow as an artist without being distracted or consumed with fame.

She also states she is not a pop act:

I consider myself an artist. And it’s an artist’s responsibility to be revolutionary in our work. It’s our responsibility, our duty and our privilege.

The photos are apparently part of a 70-page portfolio by Alas shot in Berlin, L.A. and London.
