    I have a subscription to Men's Health Magazine, but I was wondering if there was a good magazine like that written more for a gay/bi male audience. Anyone got suggestions on what to try?

    Men's Health is definitely anti-gay. There was a forum years ago and they shut the gay / bi conversations down. And then women started to join in so they could meet guys through Men's Health. I would not stay with Men's Health. There are no other real alternatives except the muscle mags. Not sure how anti-gay they are even though a lot of muscle guys are gay / bi.

    Why would it matter if the magazine is written for a gay/bi audience? If fitness is your main goal, you can just ignore all the cheezy "How to make her want more" articles.

    True! You can just skip past the "what does she want" stuff. They recently got a new editor. There are numerous changes. They have sort of lost my interest. Do not know if I will renew. May look into other fitness information sources. Any suggestions (web based?)?

    There were a few attempts over the years (anybody remember MGF or Hero but even they ended up being more about music and clothes. Magazines are thinly-veiled catalogs for products, the ads for which pay for most of your subscription. I'd figure out who is producing the most helpful articles for what you're trying to accomplish and ignore the rest. Quite frankly I think you probably get just as good advice on here.

    For the same money you could get a paid subscription to something Daily Burn where you have access to bounce questions of a pro and have them review your workouts, etc.

    I don't understand. I thought only gay men (and their closeted brothers) read Men's Health.

    Men's Health tends to be a waste of paper IMHO.

    Worthwhile for some cooking ideas, and maybe gawking at the models who are hardly representative of the average overweight schlub they are marketing to with headlines like "Burn that gut away in 4 weeks!" with various permutations on the same workouts they've been hawking since 1992.

    Just go to your local library. They carry almost all of the major fitness magazines. You can check them out for a week.

    yeh, I'd have to say it is basically a closeted magazine

    Just look at "Guy Gourmet" .... straight guys aren't going to do any of that... unless they are just in the closet icon_twisted.gif

    Look at their covers ... just who are they trying to target?

    If you see a guy reading Men's Health you can pretty much guarantee he is either in the closet or bi.

    Personally, I liked the Men's Workout .. the guys are a lot hotter
