A new Spanish gay and lesbian news source called “Magayzine” launches in September and it focuses on the LGBT Spanish speaking population. Non-Spanish speakers can hit the “Google translate” button and enjoy the site in English.

However, most of the videos are broadcast in Spanish.

The media source has its roots in Spain, but will cover international news and entertainment.

In September they will begin to stream near-daily exclusive programs, and hope to make these a regular offering in the future. Here are some examples of what the channel produces:

Tuesdays: “A Pie de Calle”. Programs recorded at the street, getting responses from the public about current topics.

Wednesdays: “Ambigú”. Recorded on a set, it focuses on scenarios: theater, cinema and cabaret.

Thursdays: “Café”. Recorded on a set, it focuses on interviews with culture and politics protagonists.

As the channel becomes more established it will begin to deliver more shows such as “Magayzine Hot,” featuring adult movie star interviews. They would also like to create a show focused on lesbian community.

Magayzine also has a sister site called www.universogay.com which also focuses on the LGBT community.

As the Latino LGBT population continues to grow, Magayzine hopes to provide not only timely news and features, but provide an outlet for the community in their own terms.
