London gay magazine Boyz goes monthly from now on


London’s well-known gay scene magazine, Boyz, announces a move to monthly publication. The issue devoted to the Pride in London was the final one with a weekly status. Its publishers promise, ‘A true “take home” coffee table-style magazine offering articles, interviews and features depicting the modern gay life. Boyz launched as a free distribution title in July 1991. It went from strength to strength in the 1990s as the LGBTI scene across the UK grew. It launched a separate UK edition to complement its London version. But as the Internet arrived, the printed media started losing their popularity sharply. Boyz dropped its UK edition in the early 00s. In recent years, it’s lost scene advertisers and has instead turned to other sources of revenue. It has seen its weekly pagination fall regularly to around 40 pages (from a heyday of 100+). In a press release, a spokesperson said, the new monthly version will be thicker and heavier, with a glossy cover and a digital edition as well, but it will be distributed in the main gay venues as usually.
