Gay Magazines Next And Frontiers Shut Down

South Florida Gay News reports:

Bobby Blair’s dream to build an international media enterprise has apparently come crashing to a halt this week. SFGN has received information that the staff of Multimedia Platforms, which includes the Florida Agenda and Next Magazine in New York, has been let go, and there will be no print editions this week. Frontiers in LA, purchased by MMPW last year, is also impacted.

As news leaked out, Blair himself issued a brief press release indicating that a court order had been issued seizing the assets of his company, and a restraining order “has been issued prohibiting the company from distributing any cash or any other assets of the company.” Lenders in the State of Massachusetts apparently filed the action.

In an effort to explain the company’s present difficulties, Blair told SFGN “for the record, I was re-appointed CEO last week as I became informed all this was happening by management. The last 4 months I have not been involved or included in any day-to-day business or involved in this now disputed credit facility.”

Blair indicated in private emails to colleagues, which are being circulated in social media, that he has retained counsel to “fight” the seizure but has refused, as of this time, to name the lawyers or the court where the action is proceeding. His representation to one party was that “new management signed a horrible deal that I have now to fix.”

More from WEHoville:

Blair was once one of the country’s top junior tennis players in the United States and played professionally and coached. In 2009, he launched the Fort Lauderdale-based Florida Agenda, an LGBT newspaper. In June 2012, he took control of a company that eventually evolved into MMWP, with plans to buy and expand digital and print products across the country. He now lives in Los Angeles.

Blair purchased New Frontiers Media LLC, the publisher of Frontiers, in September 2015 from Michael Turner, whose profession is assessing the value of properties. Turner acquired Frontiers out of bankruptcy for $361,000 in December 2013. Blair’s MMPW added Frontiers to a portfolio that included Florida Agenda; Fun Maps, a series of maps of gay communities calling out bars and shops; Next Magazine, a New York City gay nightlife guide, and Guy Magazine, a Fort Lauderdale website for gay men.

In a filing with the federal Securities and Exchange Commission, MMWP said its net revenue as of the six months ending June 30, 2016, was $1,459,168, leaving it with a net loss of $4,698,798. It reported negative working capital of $5,518,237. As of yesterday, the value of MMPW, including all of its publications, was $299,000 according to an online listing of penny stocks.

    Print is in its final decades. Thirty years from today, there won’t be any print.

    It’ll all be online.

    • safari

      I’m hoping reusable paper-or-book-like e-ink devices will be in vogue. I screen to much, and the tactile pleasure of flipping pages is nice.

      • Reality.Bites

        Perhaps there’s a perfect digital representation of books coming, but it seems to me the attempts at it so far have appealed to primarily to a somewhat older demographic, based on what I see in planes, which is pretty much the only place I see them. And most people I know in their 60s and up don’t use them either.

        • Chuck in NYC

          A couple of years ago I’d see people reading ebooks in the subway, but now I almost never do — which makes me think ebooks, like many things, were more of a fad than people initially thought they’d be.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Which is worrisome when you consider that all it would take is a couple of strategically place EMP’s to wipe out digital technology. We should never give up on hard copies, ever.

    • Goodboy

      30 years is very optimistic but I get your point.

      • another_steve

        I predict the Next Big Thing will be inexpensive, easy-to-use, intuitive electronic hardware that everyone — age 5 to 105 — can own and use with virtually no technical issues/problems.

        It’ll put a lot of “techies” out of business — the entire computer repair industry will be in jeopardy of going extinct — but the demand for what I’ve described will be so enormous and so lucrative that the market will eventually satisfy it.

        • robirob

          I believe the endgame is the cloud where consumers are only offered devices without any harddrive and all the files being stored in the cloud where the service provider has full control over them which could mean the end of torrent sharing, throttling access to non-sanctioned media content and so called subversive communities.

          • another_steve

            I agree. No more hard drives. No more complicated, expensive parts. Cheap, easy-to-use portable devices that can be updated easily without the need to shell out hundreds of dollars every other year for “the next upgrade.”

            You pay for what you want to see and read and use, and it’s sent to your device.

    • CatApostrophe

      Legit question: what will we replace newspaper with for projects that come with instructions like, “Lay down some newspaper to protect the floor…” I started wondering about this when my city banned non-reuasble plastic shopping bags from grocery and convenience stores, because husband and I stockpile them for when we clean out the cats’ litter boxes. I know you can use old towels or cut apart garbage bags or any number of things, but newspaper has always been the go-to for messy stuff. I wonder what we’ll use when it’s gone.

      • another_steve

        That’s an easy one, hon: They’ll start marketing cheap liner paper for all those miscellaneous uses. There’ll always be pet boxes to line, after all.

        When the demand appears, the supply is never too far behind.

    • FancyThat

      Ditto for such nearly obsolete ‘printed’ material as phone books.

      Years ago, I had a copy of the 4 lb metro white pages in my trunk so I wouldn’t have to stop at convenience/grocery stores to use their abused phone booth copies.

      A few days ago, I looked over at a large phone book that arrived several months back and realized I’ve never opened it… and likely never will.

      I blame Steve Jobs. 🙂

      • another_steve

        Paper is already being phased out by the U.S. Federal Government.

        Retired federal annuitants (I am one) who want to receive a paper copy of their health insurance benefits manual must specifically request one. Otherwise, it’s assumed they’ll access it online.

        Many other examples of this.

  • JoeMyGod

    I haven’t been able to read Next for years due to its font size……

    • Treant

      There comes a time in everybody’s life where resisting glasses and/or bifocals becomes impossible. I passed that particular point in college, so at least for me it wasn’t an age-related thing, just terrible eyes. I’ve been in bifocals since age 20!

      Now we resist stepping up the bifocal strength…and trifocals? Those are for old people.

      • johncAtl

        That’s what Cmd-+ (or Ctrl-+) is for.

      • JoeMyGod

        I’ve worn reading glasses for nearly two decades. Lately I’m in the habit of carrying an illuminated magnifying glass in my backpack.

        • Treant

          Time for an appointment (mine is, oddly enough, today at 3 PM, I’m having trouble with small print again). We’ll doubtless change my script, upgrade the bifocal again, and possibly finally go to a trifocal.

          • Nic Peterson

            Ask if progressive lenses are a solution. I’ve been pretty happy with the versatility they offer.

          • Rex

            Being versatile is always a plus.

          • Nic Peterson

            Amen, Rex.

          • I call my progressives my “Bernie Glasses” or, if on stage, by “guy focals.”

          • sfbob

            I went directly from over-the-counter reading glasses to progressives, twenty years ago (ok…twenty-ONE years ago; got off a plane from Provincetown, went to the optican’s office, picked them up and headed directly to the Folsom Street Fair. My that sounds awfully gay, doesn’t it? Ah well if the shoe fits…Anyway I have never regretted it for a moment. I think it took me all of five minutes to get used to them.

          • Nic Peterson

            Well, yes, that does sound awfully gay and good for you. Seeing as we are on the subject, if the boot fits, ask if you can lick it.

      • Jafafa Hots

        I have Meniere’s so reading glasses cause vertigo. I’m just screwed.

        And not in a good way.

        • SoCalVet

          me too when I’m even slightly symptomatic. at least I’m not alone. Helps if I don’t look at anything but what i’m reading and don’t leave them hanging on nose when walking

          Screwed….that reminds me….I need to call (multiorgasmic) Stan. I love it when he grabs ahold of my hips and pumps 3 or more loads into me. Life IS good!

      • Giant Monster Gamera

        Modern bifocals are pretty stylish, especially with the invisible line. No one even knows I wear them. I started when I was 45 and delayed because I thought they would make me look 80.

        • Treant

          I still use the lined bifocal so I have the maximum focal area. It’s not nearly as attractive, but does mean I can read a hardcover book without constant head turning.

        • Rex

          You can’t be over 45!
          OK, maybe I need glasses.

          • Giant Monster Gamera

            48. Like cheese, I improved as I aged.

          • BobSF_94117

            I’m more like a soft cheese, squishy in places and generally saggy in the heat…

        • CatApostrophe

          I’ve worn glasses since I was 2 and the old-timey bifocals were pretty bad. When I was a kid, other kids would ask my why I was wearing lenses with giant cracks in them. My dad jumped on the invisible ones (for both of us) pretty much as soon as they were invented/available.

          • 2guysnamedjoe

            I wish I could wear the invisible ones. I tried, twice. Both pairs were dizzy -making. They felt like swim goggles half filled with water. I tried, but I couldn’t get used to them. So it was back to old-school bifocals and dollarstore cheaters.

      • Rex

        I wore contacts for years, nearsighted. I ended up having to wear reading glasses when I had contacts in. I just gave up on the contacts since I had to wear the readers most of the day, especially working on the computer. I now take my glasses off to read. I also went to the doc a couple weeks ago, he gave me a weaker prescription, said my distance vision had improved. Weird.

        • BlueberriesForMe

          Same situation with me. I still wear contact lenses but have gone through a lot of cheap reading glasses – which I bring with me everywhere :=).

      • BobSF_94117

        After wearing glasses since 3rd grade, my eyesight has actually improved in recent years. I can work at my laptop without glasses and meander around the house sans specs. The only drawback is that I’m losing my close-up vision. I used to be able to see ANYTHING, even teeny tiny print down to just an inch away. Very annoying…

      Really a shame – Frontiers used to be “it” in the L.A. in the 80’s for news and ads in our community. It was so openly gay and widely distributed it felt like a symbol of LGBT rights.

  • Jafafa Hots

    Starting a print magazine failed? Maybe next try issuing wax cylinder recordings.

      You will take my stone tablet magazines when you pry them out of my cold, dead hands that are on the wheelbarrow handles I use to cart the magazines around.

    I suspect Nyc has too many gay party magazines.
    DC has one, Metro Weekly. And it’s going fine

    • another_steve

      I’ve lost track, hon: Is the Washington Blade still available in print form?

      I know it’s online, but I’m not sure about print.

      • Craig Howell

        Very much so.

        • another_steve

          I’m glad to hear it, Craig. Thanks for the update.

          For years — pre-internet — the Blade was a lifeline to news and events. To keeping up-to-date.

          Here in Maryland, many outlets — mainly bookstores and the like — carried it. It was free but we still subscribed to it for the convenience of having it delivered to our mailbox.

    • Chuck in NYC

      Well, there’s also Get Out! and Odyssey, but Next focused almost exclusively on New York City whereas the others include nightlife in the surrounding region.

    • Goodboy

      Oh goody. I remember those. Here in LA we had the Odysee and Circuit Noize magazines.

      Where else you gonna find the hottest new clubs and see the cool people enjoying themselves while completely shitfaced. Ah memories or what I can remember..

      • SelectFromWhere

        Facebook?

    • Chuck in NYC

      I think the other thing about this story is the allegation that the guy was trying to build a media “empire.” Maybe if he’d concentrated on one region of the country and keeping that area’s publication(s) successful he might not have hit the jackpot but still have managed to make a living.

  • MB

    Apparently, math is hard.

  • johncAtl

    It appears they had brilliant management. From the linked article…

    Under Turner, Frontiers magazine headed in an unusual direction. He
    brought on as editorial advisor Owen Phillips, a heterosexual man, who
    helped Turner realize what he told WEHOville was his goal of expanding the magazine’s appeal to a heterosexual audience as well as a gay audience.

    • Butch

      That sounds to me like no audience.

    • So, basically what the owners of AfterEllen are trying to do? GAG.

    • ShawnSwagger

      What a brilliant idea. If only there were magazines targeted at heterosexual readers! I can’t picture what that would look like.

    • robirob

      Know your audience or target demographic. Nobody likes watered down media content that’s not offensive, or blatant pandering, to some other demographic. Find out what your demographic likes and what they are willing to pay big money for. That’s how you will stay in business. You get yourself into one hell of a hole when you try to juggle too many demographics at once. Hell, even two are tricky sometimes.

  • FilmTurtle

    Print publications may not be viable anymore. But all of these magazines have years of articles, photos and documentation of our community. All of it will go into a dumpster now, most likely. Wish I had the money to archive it myself. What a shame.

    • I hope some of it gets turned over to the GLBT Historical Museum & Archives.

      • Chuck in NYC

        I am sure I still have an issue or two of Michael’s Thing in a box. I think that ended publication in the early 80s — it was New York’s “pocket-sized” nightlife guide in the 70s, printed in glorious black and white.

        • FancyThat

          I have a copy of Michael’s Thing !! — featuring a flavor-of-the week wannabe teen on the cover. A little bucksnort rugrat named Tom Cruise — with broad ambitions, damaged front teeth and a plucked uni-brow.

          He was quite the boy-toy evidently, and his promo shots were certainly a tidy-whitey hint at his Risky Business karaoke future.

          It’s good to see someone else out there who remembers that rag… I grabbed it as a guide of clubs and places to see on Christopher Street and beyond……

          My copy isn’t quite pocket sized — a folded 8 1/2 x 11 ‘magazine’ with a center staple- printing press B/W on glossy stock.

          (I’d always assumed TC was gay from that one publication . He was at least gay for the duration of that early quasi-porn promo photo shoot…)

    • another_steve

      As with anything and all things, there are collectors. People who collect Issue #1 through the final issue. Of everything.

      Fear not.

      The mags won’t disappear from the face of the planet.

      • m_lp_ql_m

        Unfortunately, society has a nasty habit of erasing our history, if not maliciously, then through neglect. We need to be proactive about such things.

        • another_steve

          There are professionally organized and run LGBT archives across the country, collecting and preserving our history.

          I’m familiar with the one associated with the LGBT Community Center of NYC, having contributed some of my own early-1970s movement documents to it.

          • SelectFromWhere

            The ONE Intituate in Los Angeles is probably the most thorough GLBT archives–also the San Francisco Historical Society I believe. More and more regions are founding their own GLBT archives, so hang on to LOCAL ephemera. Make sure the place you donate it to is not a tiny nonprofilt that could go belly up, though. Archives experts suggest universities and museums.

    • Duh-David

      I’m still amazed by how much gay ephemera sells for on the eBay. Found a box in the attic lined with old gay newspapers and bar flyers from the eighties. Maybe Ali Forney Center will be able to buy another building.

      • another_steve

        I used to have several subscriptions to gay newspapers and magazines. Like lots of people, too many at times — and the stuff piled up, unread.

        Somewhere in my basement is a box of maybe 50 unread gay newspapers from the late-70s/early-80s.

        Who knows; maybe I’m a millionaire and don’t even know it.

        • CatApostrophe

          Maybe I’m a media nerd, but that sounds amazing. Hang onto those!! All I have is a stack of Chick tracts (hilarious), some Scientology magazines (SO weird…), a pile of Mormon and Jehovah’s Witnesses pamphlets (I collect crazy religious literature), and the front page of the Chicago Trib announcing Obama’s first presidential win in ’08. My stuff’s funny but worthless. Your stuff sounds like a valuable time capsule.

        • SelectFromWhere

          I have boxes and boxes of ADVOCATES from the 1990s in my attic. I know it is digitized, but I keep thinking the actual issues might have use somewhere. We pack rats save history.

      • Rex

        I hung onto my old “Ahmen” and International male catalogs for years, they were my early jack off material. Kinda wish I’d saved them.

        • Rex

          I also remember seeing my first copy of “Blueboy” magazine. Changed my life, lol.
          Back in the day print material was our link to the outside especially for small town country boys.

          • SelectFromWhere

            In the early days of eBay, I was able to amass every issue of Blueboy from #1 through about 1990–ditto with Mandate, Stallion, and Torso. Laugh if you want, but I did it for the articles (nobody would find those lame photos titillating now). Those old articles in magazines likely not indexed by any traditional servies have such interesting stuff about the community, clubs, etc. from back then. When I retire I might figure out a way to digitize it.

          • SoCalGal20

            You might consider eventually donating them to a library that has an lgbt archive or an organization that is working on archiving gay history. There must be some out there.

          • Chuck in NYC

            San Francisco’s public library does. They may concentrate on Bay Area publications, but maybe they’d also take nationally distributed items.

          • DaveInSF

            And also two other entities in San Francisco; the SF GLBT History Museum, and the Center for Sex and Culture Archive Library.

          • Rex

            Those old pics do get my attention, simply because they bring back the memories of how I reacted to them then.

          • FilmTurtle

            Please do that! And let the JMG community know about it! That documentation of our community exists nowhere else. Perhaps there’s someone here tech-savvy who can help out.

        • 2guysnamedjoe

          All those stuck-together pages would’ve drastically decreased their resale value, though.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Hope some library or museum or university can find a place for this slice of history.

    • FancyThat

      Thanks for reminding me what the feature topic was. Without my reading glasses, I have to scrolli all the way back to the top to remember.

      Oh yeah, Frontiers and Next.

      Nah, let’s keep writing more Trump micro-penis jokes! 🙂

    • Jenni

      Uh, aren’t the “articles” of which you speak trifling bit so paper devoted to such topics as “Spit or Swallow?” or “Douche or Do It Dirty?” or “Nobody Uses Condoms Anymore Except for You”? You want to archive that kind of drivel? Seriously, let me know. I’ll start putting my used toilet paper into Ziploc bags so I can mail it to you, for archival purposes.

  • Chuck in NYC

    I’ve always been puzzled by the decreasing lack of distribution of Next — a free publication that depends on providing eyeballs for its advertisers. At one point there were corner kiosks all over Chelsea and at strategic locations elsewhere in NYC. These began disappearing some years ago, and you could find it only in bars and a few restaurants. The fewer places one can find it, the fewer eyeballs you can report to advertisers — resulting in smaller ad rates. I’m sure there are rough economics regarding paying the people to fill and maintain the kiosk stands, but cutting back the kiosks completely seemed a bad move.

    HX, which was the first of the local bar rags, seemed to go through the same thing. It surprised many people that HX folded and Next, the apparent lesser of the two, survived.

  • Paula

    I have to be honest, I’ve never heard of them. Were they oriented towards Gay men, primarily. I’d remember reading a couple of issue of 10 Percent magazine. That was a long time ago.

    • Chuck in NYC

      Yes, gay male oriented but I think the women’s bars were also shown on Next’s maps. (Someone correct me if I’m misremembering.)

    • ShawnSwagger

      Frontiers is pretty well distributed around southern California, even in the desert, but they’re free so I assume all the revenues has to come from the ads. And it is at least 50% ads.

  • Goodboy

    This brings back memories for me of my trips to LA and picking up Frontiers and IN Magazines at the Bars. Back then they had awesome articles on Gay life. That was 20 years ago.

    I find it more amazing that they’ve still been holding on. Another bygone era.

    O/T: Detroit News ends 143 year history of endorsing a Republican candidate, choosing Gary Johnson.

    • Treant

      So closer, but they still missed.

      • Reality.Bites

        I find myself hoping that Johnson does worse than his national average in Detroit.

        • Treant

          You an’ me both.

          • Butch

            The man who in response to answer a question from Chris Matthews couldn’t name a single world leader. Yes, he seems nice.

    • Blake J Butler

      Someone must have not seen MSNBC last night with him and Weld. Johnson couldn’t even name one leader he admired. He said former president of Mexico, but couldn’t name him. Ironically given he WAS the governor of New Mexico, and should know his name.

      He supports TPP, wants rights given back to the states, which would be terrible if was ever put into the hands of republicans with regards to reproductive rights, LGBT rights, basically social issues.

      But this is who millennials see as a “leader” in comparison to Hillary ?

      Fucking twits.

      • Duh-David

        He called it his “Aleppo Moment.” My favorite was when he bizarrely stuck his tongue out at the reporter like the very serious candidate he is.

        Polling shows he’s pulling more voters away from Clinton than Trump.

      • Nic Peterson

        He’s a libertarian, he has no interest in leadership.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Umm, … what’s a detroit?

      • safari

        That’s a complicated question to answer.

    • Nic Peterson

      In Detroit no less. Yet another editorial board that somehow missed that FDR guy 4 times in a row. Makes ya wonder.

  • Blake J Butler

    O/T: 538 improved the percentages for the election forecast for Clinton in the “if the election where held today tab”, and the forecast tab evaluating everything including the economy is at 69.3% if the election were held today, and 60.7 for the other forecast including evaluating everything including the economy.

    • ElenorRigby

      I’m sure Joe knows this and there’s no need to spam us with off-topic comments.

      • Blake J Butler

        Joe can’t respond to everything that we send him. He didn’t post it, so i went ahead and did so. I am doing what a lot of other people are doing here without incident.

        Don’t give me that speech unless you are giving the same one to everyone else doing off topic comments. Or are you trying to intimidate me because i’m still new around here and not established like other commenters have been doing for years on here I’m sure.

        No one tells me what to do when i have done nothing wrong, harmed no one, and informing people ahead of when Joe may or may not actually post some of the findings we post.My comments are not spam at all, or are you too stupid to tell the difference between a real one and a fake one.

        Fuck off.

        • ElenorRigby

          ok, Nelly, dial it back. If you have a tip for Joe, he’s very reachable on Facebook and his email [email protected] which is listed in the contact area above.

          • Blake J Butler

            i have his email address on file, because i have recently sent him links to stories i thought would be interesting. sometimes he responds, sometimes he doesn’t thats fine. But i will post whatever i feel is relevant. Do not give me a comment that says i’m “spamming” the thread, i did what i felt was best because Joe cannot possibly receive EVERYTHING we send him, so we are allowed to step in a post links to stories that are interesting and relevant. Sometimes we get to it before Joe can even make a post.

            Most people don’t have a problem with that on here. As a lot of people do it throughout the day, let alone the entire week when news is sometimes slow.

            We’re done here.

          If you want Joe to post it, email him. But you have completely hijacked another thread. JMG comments are not where to start new topics with “O/T”

          Welcome Blake. Life is essentially Off Topic and perpetually improv. Post away, … And I’ll read it with gusto, whether you’re throttling Aristotle or just goozberried brainwonked. Thanks for taking the time.

        Rude.

        I agree. I know it’s election season and people are keyed up, but this “topic creep” keeps happening more and more lately. It’s not as if there aren’t other threads that would be more appropriate for the latest campaign news.

        No need to be mean either. The comment starts with O/T. No one is forced to read from that point.

    Maybe Bobby wants to explore new frontiers. Head north to North Dakota.
    Lots of action. Storm troopers with boy toys show up armed to teeth on September 28, 2016. Maybe do a hook up with 2 spirit dude in camps. Hold on to your seat here’s video.

    Remember the days when the Advocate came in a plain brown cover, I think their focus on beautiful celebrities was their downfall…. kinda of like HRC. Most queer people are just trying to get by and don’t care about that type of culture. You can get the celebrity news from better, cheaper sources now like TMZ or Hilton (both queer run).

    Sad news, but I actually know the guy on the Next cover. Straight, but a great ally.

      When’s his new movie coming out? Been waiting for something new from Ray Yeung since Cut Sleeve Boys.

    The problem is that with mobile devices people can google all the info some of these magazines provided.

    Looking for a nice hip, gay club? What events are happening tonite or this weekend? Google is your man.

    Looking for escorts or random hookups? Grindr or some other social media app will help with that.

    We are getting more and more used to rely on digital information and the devices that give us access to them. Buying CDs and DVDs or buying print copies of books and magazines is on its way out.

    Was there anything to read in Frontier other than ads? I guess I missed it then.

  • SelectFromWhere

    The best thing about Frontiers used to be “Leonard and Larry”.

    • Chuck in NYC

      Totally! Inside back page was always the first place you’d look.

    That’s too bad. Every Thursday night I would pick up Florida Agenda, Hot Spots, SFGN and Next (well Next just for the photos) and devour up the pages, especially when I first moved to the Wilton Manors area and I would feel connected to the community and would have some idea what was happening in town. 3 years later, I still pick them up, but don’t get around to reading them all.
