LOS ANGELES — The founder of New York’s Gay City News has launched a newspaper that will serve Los Angeles’ LGBT community.
Troy Masters and Mirror Media Group, which publishes several neighborhood publications in Los Angeles, will publish the first print issue of The Pride LA on Oct. 9.
Masters told Gay City News that the publication will be a biweekly newspaper that will cover West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Silver Lake, Echo Park, downtown Los Angeles and universities that are located in those areas. He said he will publish 20,000 copies of the first issue that will also be available on its website.
“Not every publisher has quite as much luck as I have had over 30 years,” Masters told Gay City News, reflecting on the decades he has spent working in LGBT media. “The progress for my media operations and the trajectory of gay rights have both been a sharp upward curve. I am thrilled to have this opportunity in Los Angeles.”
