The magazine, called “Fun,” is already 75,000 printed copies strong and is available by subscription and will appear at bookstores and train stations.
“There was a need to highlight the issues faced by the community, which the mainstream media did not address adequately. I also wanted to connect more with my community. Then I thought this medium would be the best to reach out,” Gohil told IANS.
“The magazine also appeals to straight women, basically anybody who loves men,” said Gohil. “The other gay magazine, Bombay Dost, talks about gay empowerment and HIV-related issues. But this is a magazine which speaks of the lifestyle of gay men. We’re focusing on fashion, fitness, gizmos and relationships … the real life coming-out-of-the-closet kind of stories, health, relationships. It is a complete lifestyle magazine that will interest all, not just gay men, lesbians, bis, transgenders.”
