Lesbian mags straight to your browser

Looking for some serious lesbian journalism? Want lots of pretty pages and women to perve at? Need a dose of  lesbiantainment? Don’t want to pay for a brown envelope in the mail every month? Hate shipping fees?

Some of the best lesbian news magazines today are available to you online. You don’t need special software or any wait time. Some are available for modest subscription fees, others are free to view/download anytime.  Digital editions are all the rage.

CURVE (US) is having a free online view trial for 2 weeks. If you like it, you can subscribe to the web version of the mag and/or in addition to the print version.

LOTL (Aust.) aka Lesbians On The Loose, has been fully online for over a year. A staple of the Sydney lesbian scene, it has expanded to other state capitals and is now LOTL International. Free to Sydneysiders. Subscription online.

BOUND (Aust.) glam sister to LOTL. Subscription access.

CHERRIE (Aust.) a feminist, bi and queer magazine that is really pro-lesbian, started rolling online and in print from day one.

G3 (UK) very hip (does anyone say “hip” anymore?). Clever media embedded. Free issues online and in PDF.

On Our Backs (US) in print, with teasers online.

The chockful AfterEllen.com. You can never have enough.

L.mag (Germany) started in 2010.

Autostraddle (US) girl-on-girl culture, aimed at the younger or web-addicted lesbian.

Honourable mentions:

DIVA (UK) does not have an online edition yet but soooon should, I hope.

GLU (Netherlands/US) Redefining lesbianism. Print only.

Xtra (Canada) and Fridae (Asia). Oh, and SLIT (Aust., print only) because it is outrageous.

I know there are heaps more sites with LGBT content but I’m interested in lesbian periodicals. If you know of others I should add to the list, send ’em along.

    I’m a lesbian and I started Weeqender, it’s an LGBTQ travel and lifestyle magazine. It’s the first in the Philippines, if I may add. Right now the content is more focused on lesbians but we’re working to represent the GBTQs in Weeqender.

    I have listed the different lesbian labels used in the Philippines and it might interest you: http://weeqender.com/2009/filipina-lesbian-tomboy-names/

      You’ve done a lovely site. I hope we’ll see lots of pink travel news for the Philippines in future. Good luck.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
