Butt, the international quarterly magazine for and about homosexuals, is halting print production for the rest of 2010 in order to (pardon the expression) tighten up the magazine’s website, which will relaunch in August.
The magazine’s founders and editors broke the news to readers in an email this morning, calling the break a sabbatical.
Dear BUTT friend,
You may have noticed that BUTT magazine has been coming out more and more irregularly recently, and in fact we are taking a little break this year from the quarterly publication schedule, in order to develop the magazine’s online presence and other BUTT projects. This means that a printed follow-up of the current issue (BUTT 28) is not expected until 2011. In the meantime we’ll use this sabbatical from print as a welcome break to develop new exciting ideas and formats for BUTT, both online and off. Ideas and contributions are welcome as ever!
This August we’ll be launching an updated and more versatile version of our popular website, http://www.buttmagazine.com – with more fun and functionality for readers and a new platform for BUTTHEADS, the digital community of BUTT lovers. Meanwhile, a follow-up of the delicious BUTT 2010 calendar is well on its way for 2011. Stay tuned!
For now, enjoy the spring and see you very soon!
