EDGE, via its technology arm Pride Labs LLC, is the world's largest publisher of mobile products for the LGBT community, publishing hundreds of websites and native apps for iOS and Android on behalf of community partners, businesses and organizations. We also produce the world's most popular LGBT news mobile app and the world's first LGBT digital magazine for iPad (launching for Android and other iOS devices in 2015).
This month, in celebration of gay pride all over the country, EDGE for iPad presents our largest issue to date. On our cover is openly bi LGBT icon Margaret Cho, who's been busy with two projects: her new film and her upcoming Showtime special. On the subject of twos, this issue has not one but a pair of travel features - the first to Manchester, England, and the second an exploration of New York State's historic Hudson Valley. Completing our hat trick of pairs are this month's Look and Nightcrawler columns, which feature beautiful bodies in the latest beachwear as well as stripwear from Broadway Bares, which celebrates its 25th edition this June. Also in this issue is a trio of interviews. Our Arts column catches up with Mark Cortale, whose eclectic offering of events in Provincetown have led to a satellite series in New Orleans and one-off events in Los Angeles and London. Fresh off a multimillion-dollar renovation of New York City's LGBT Community Center, executive director Glennda Testone takes time to chat with EDGE about pioneering programs to empower the city's underserved transgender community. Larry Kramer is the subject of filmmaker Jean Carlomusto's upcoming HBO documentary, and EDGE catches up the documentarian about her work with the seminal AIDS activist. All this plus Pride apps for your smartphone, a preview of the summer's hottest jams and an overview of the current political climate in publicity-beleaguered Fire Island Pines.
The EDGE Digital Magazine is available for free on Apple iPads (Android is coming!), and includes daily news, photography and opinion from the EDGE Network.
