Black Gay Magazine Premieres in Atlanta

Black Gay Magazine Premieres in Atlanta

Noble magazine is now the sole GLBT publication in Atlanta that targets the African American and Latino gay communities.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 1, 2006

For the huge Labor Day Black Gay Pride weekend, Atlanta's Gay and Lesbian population will be treated to a new magazine that serves the African American and Latino Gay and Lesbian communities.

"I could not believe that there was no publication in Atlanta that served the African American and Latino GLBT communities (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender). The entire country is well aware of the large number of African American Gays and Lesbians in Atlanta. In many states, Atlanta is considered the 'Black Gay Mecca,'" said Eric Gilbert, founder and investor in RMI Publications Inc, a 10 year old publishing company established in Los Angeles, CA. RMI Publishing specializes in niche publications.

Noble is Gilbert's latest venture. The publication premiered three years ago originally but Gilbert admits he and his staff were not familiar enough with the market at the time. We had an immediate offer from a publication that served the white gay community to become an insert in their publication but we didn't think that was a good idea. Hindsight, it was a great idea but you live and learn and also realize that everything and I mean everything happens for reason!" Gilbert laughs.

Noble will be a fun-filled humorous publication that covers entertainment, media, fashion, real estate, health and the publication has several event tie-ins with local black gay clubs, sponsors and organizations.

The African American Gay and Lesbian reader has an average income range of $58,000 per year. This is often expendable income and this is a great opportunity for advertisers to reach an under-served market.
