OutWords magazine is a unique advertising property in Western Canada

WHO WE ARE

OutWords is the only magazine in Manitoba that creates content specifically for gay, lesbian, bi, trans and sexually diverse readers and their families. OutWords has covered the events and issues of interest to this thriving and economically strong community since 1994.

WHO READS OUTWORDS

OutWords magazine is read by the gay and lesbian community and those who are supportive of sexual diversity and know how important it is to keep abreast of the latest developments in the GLBT community. OutWords readers lead active professional and personal lives. They are keenly interested in political, social and entertainment developments. They are loyal to brands that are seen to have value and they are early adopters of fashion and technology trends.

2016 WILL BE AN EXCITING YEAR

This year, we will distribute more than 35,000 glossy copies over six issues, published every other month. OutWords will be available at more than 100 high-traffic locations throughout Manitoba, including popular coffee shops, nightclubs, the Pride festival and selected liquor marts.

Our writers and photographers will inform and entertain readers with unique stories on themes such as love and dating, being gay at work, celebrating Pride, religion and spirituality, arts in the GLBT community, money and business, and the diverse sex scene. We will offer tips on the best vacation destinations, the hottest fashions, music and home decor.

We will inspire readers with profiles of actors, artists, musicians and other creative members of the GLBT community. And, of course, we will keep readers informed about events in the community and across the world that affect their lives.

OUTWORDS ONLINE

Outwords.ca offers readers the option of a paperless version. It includes additional resources for the GLBT community, an online community calendar, lifestyle articles from local bloggers, plus news headlines from home and around the world.
