    I’ve been reading Zach Stafford since he was a Chicago-based contributor to the UK Guardian. It’ll be interesting to see if can change a mainstream publication or if it changes him...

    Excerpt:

    Zach Stafford, former chief content officer of Grindr, has been announced as the incoming editor-in-chief of The Advocate. The move makes Stafford, who was also the editor-in-chief of the Grindr-owned publication INTO, the second executive to leave the company in the past few weeks. Both departures follow Grindr president Scott Chen making headlines for statements about his views on marriage quality. INTO, then under the direction of Stafford, was the first to report on those statements.

    “I have long respected The Advocate and the role the magazine played in the LGBTQ community, which started with their reporting on police brutality in the late 1960’s, a topic I’m intimately familiar with from my own work,” Stafford said in a release. “I am incredibly excited to lead The Advocate in reporting and storytelling on LGBTQ life around the world, even if it means ruffling a few feathers along the way.”

    Both The Advocate and OUT are owned by Pride Media Inc. ....

    Glad I guess he got the job, however moving from Grindr to Advocate two places that don't give a shit about BAME people only when its about Condoms, HIV/AIDS, Violence against a Gay person, or as something to experience sexually, nah I am good. :nopekid:

    I think you’re unfairly judging Stafford. I had to look up the acronym BAME. Must be a commonwealth thing. I don’t know why any African would lump Asians together with blacks, though, considering the Chinese are the new colonialists and have nothing in common with blacks...
