EXHALE Magazine is a new travel magazine aimed at upscale GLBT readers, encouraging readers to “explore the unexpected.” Positioned as a national coffee table book publication, March 2010 marks the debut issue, publishing six times a year.
EXHALE’s website says the magazine is designed to, “pique the imagination and inspire the senses with diverse travel-related editorial content that highlights the bounty and beauty of our planet. We strive to inspire readers by providing elegant, positive and ethical editorial that encourages readers to explore the unexpected, contribute to the global community and commit to responsible stewardship of the earth.”
Indeed, EXHALE Magazine practices what it preaches by vowing to donate five full pages of advertising space in each issue to environmental and GLBT community charitable organizations. In addition, a tree will be planted through American Forests/Global ReLeaf for every ad, single copy and subscription sale made throughout the year.
A sample issue on site includes gorgeous photography and features on New Zealand and Provincetown, MA. Feature articles included mentions of places to visit, restaurants, accommodations, insider tips and web sites and sources for information about the destination.
EXHALE describes their upscale GLBT audience as educated, affluent and social men and women ages 25-65 from around the globe, who travel, dine out and pamper themselves on a regular basis.
Print and online readership is estimated to be 100,000 and subscription distribution is put at 15,000. Digital versions will be archived online two months after publication. Print editions will also be distributed by GLBT businesses and upscale establishments.
Publisher and editor-in-chief is Stone Siegel.
