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 iOS (launching for Android in Q1 2016).
Last month millions of people took to the streets in numerous Women's Marches around the globe to protest the Trump administration's threat to the rights of women, minorities, immigrants, muslims and the LGBT community. In this month's Nation column, EDGE's Jill Gleeson offers an on-the-ground perspective of this turning point in civil rights protesting. 7,000 miles away in South Africa, a country that had seen its share of civil unrest, LGBT rights are surprisingly ahead our own, making it the premiere travel destination on the continent. And while its summer in South Africa, back home we're in a deep freeze and EDGE has tips on what you can do when you're snowed away from your gym. TV has always been a great antidote for the winter blues and this month's issue has two tube-focused pieces. EDGE's Arts and Entertainment editor Bob Nesti catches up with Jay Armstrong Johnson, the gay star of TV's Quantico who just made his New York City Opera debut in the title role of Candide. Looking to kill an afternoon on a snowed-in weekend? EDGE's Jason St. Amand has a preview of cable and streaming series just ripe for bingewatching. All this, plus music, fashion, nightlife and more await you in Feburary's issue.
The EDGE Digital Magazine is available for free on Apple and Android app stores via the EDGE Gay/Lesbian News Reader, which also includes daily news, photography, business directories, weather and giveaways from the EDGE Network.
