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, EDGE for iPad focuses on LGBT families. On our cover is blogger and media personality Perez Hilton, whose art is currently imitating life as he prepares to open the Off-Broadway-bound musical parody version of the '90s family sitcom "Full House", in which he plays the Bob Saget role. Our Chatter column catches up with author Jerry Mahoney, whose experience navigating the hurdles of surrogacy and the birth of his twins provided fodder for his humorous and heartfelt memoir "Mommy Man: How I Went From a Mild-Mannered Geek to Gay Superdad". As a special feature this month, EDGE's publisher, David Foucher, profiles a gay family of two from the couple's chance meeting to their final journey, where only death will part them. Our feature takes a trip to the Detroit suburbs to meet the amazing staff of the Ruth Ellis Center, who are busy launching a pilot program aimed to help foster families better understand their at-risk gay youth. On the subject of adoptive families, this month's Nation column sheds light on legislation backed by conservative groups aimed to allow private adoption agencies to decline referrals from prospective LGBT parents on religious grounds. Have you ever been annoyed with those family-friendly web filters on public Wi-Fi? Our Plugged In column gives you tips on how to get around them. Also on the tech front, this month's Tunage column examines the pros and cons of Apple Music. Have you ever wondered why a lot of gay men have stereotypically distinctive speech patterns? Our Arts column catches up with the filmmaker behind the must-see documentary of the summer, "Do I Sound Gay?" All this plus travel, fashion, nightlife and more await you in this month's issue.
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.
