Former AfterEllen editor Trish Bendix is to go on to edit Go Magazine.
Bendix announced her new position as Editor in Chief at GO Magazine – a night life listings publication showcasing lesbian events.
The popular lesbian blog closed down after more than 14 years of internet presence when the company that brought the blog were not happy with the financial return.
“I’ve been a fan of GO Magazine since the beginning, when I used to pick up the magazine at my favorite lesbian hang in Chicago, T’s,” Bendix wrote.
“T’s is gone now, as are so many of our spaces — bars, bookstores, festivals and publications — and so it’s more important than ever that our community rallies around those who have been committed to the lesbian cause and will continue to be.”
“That being said, I am thrilled to be stepping into the position of Editor in Chief of GO Magazine, a philanthropic effort and longtime community resource from an out lesbian, the dedicated and driven Amy Lesser.”
“We’re going to bring lesbian and bisexual women content that they can’t find elsewhere, content that is for them, by them and focusing on members of their own community, including trans men, trans women, non-binaries and people who identify as genderqueer.”
“I feel so lucky that I can not only continue to serve my community, but that I can do it at such a respected and pivotal place like GO, where the ultimate goal is to create something we can all be proud of,” Bendix wrote.
“I hope you will all join me in this next chapter. I promise it will be a good one.”
