I’m the editor at GayRVA.com, and a member of the Richmond LGBTQ community. I’m incredibly excited to announce the release of our new print mag hitting local shops Friday – G Magazine.
Inside you’ll find stories and photo sets showing how diverse and incredible Richmond, VA is. You’ll read about personal journeys some of our neighbors have faced, and even some about Richmond’s own LGBT history.

But using the networks and resources that we have, we like to think that every day we make things a little better.
