Backed by Grindr, Ed­i­tor in Chief Zach Stafford En­vi­sions INTO as a New Dig­i­tal Mag­a­zine for the Global LGBTQ+ Com­mu­nity

New dig­i­tal lifestyle mag­a­zine INTO has launched at INTO­more.com cre­ated for and by global mil­len­ni­als. The orig­i­nal pre­mium con­tent pub­li­ca­tion aims to en­hance the world's aware­ness of LGBTQ+ lives and is­sues through the dis­tri­bu­tion of high-qual­ity news, in­for­ma­tion and en­ter­tain­ment not found else­where.

Un­der the stew­ard­ship of Ed­i­tor-in-Chief Zach Stafford, for­merly an ed­i­tor-at­large at OUT and award-win­ning con­trib­u­tor to The Guardian, INTO cov­ers a broad range of top­ics in­clud­ing travel, en­ter­tain­ment, cul­ture, pol­i­tics, style, health, and more. The global news dig­i­tal pub­li­ca­tion will show­case a mix of long and short form con­tent—ev­ery­thing from cul­tural sto­ries to provoca­tive features, style ad­vice to beau­ti­ful art and pho­tog­ra­phy, ex­clu­sive in­ter­views to hard-break­ing jour­nal­ism, all uniquely ad­dress­ing is­sues and in­ter­ests rel­e­vant to the larger LGBTQ+ com­mu­nity.

"When Peter Slo­ter­dyk, Vice Pres­i­dent of Mar­ket­ing, and I met to dis­cuss what kind of pub­li­ca­tion INTO would be, we re­al­ized that there was a mas­sive gap in the mar­ket when it comes to LGBTQ+ con­tent. We iden­ti­fied an op­por­tu­nity to res­onate with younger, mil­len­nial read­ers—par­tic­u­larly those who are marginal­ized like the trans­gen­der com­mu­nity, queer com­mu­nity and peo­ple of color," said Stafford. "With INTO we are pro­duc­ing orig­i­nal con­tent, of­fer­ing up new nar­ra­tives that ap­peal to mil­len­ni­als, 20% of whom iden­tify as LGBTQ. We be­lieve that now is the per­fect time to pro­vide our LGBTQ+ read­ers, their al­lies, and the world at large with this un­seen con­tent."

As an ex­am­ple of the breadth of cov­er­age INTO will pro­vide, the first few months will in­clude:

- News and world af­fairs in­clud­ing up­dates on the sit­u­a­tion in Chech­nya and other in­jus­tices glob­ally;

- A monthly trans­gen­der in­ter­est col­umn penned by Raquel Wil­lis, a Black queer trans­gen­der ac­tivist and National Or­ga­nizer for Trans­gen­der Law Cen­ter, the largest or­ga­ni­za­tion in the U.S. ad­vo­cat­ing on be­half of trans­gen­der and gen­der non­con­form­ing peo­ple;

- Cul­ture sto­ries such as the in-depth pro­file of the UK's first gay Mus­lim cou­ple who were mar­ried a few weeks ago and went vi­ral.
