6. Read Just Out Every Month

Portland has had many different LGBT publications over the last few decades (just ask my boyfriend, who sits on the board of the Gay and Lesbian Archives of the Pacific Northwest), but none has endured longer than Just Out.

JustOutJust Out was started in 1983 by Renee LaChance and Jay Brown and has featured such writers as Pink Martini’s Thomas Lauderdale and bestselling sci-fi author Andy Mangels.  Marty Davis took the reins of Just Out and guided it into the 21st century.  It just wasn’t a queer Portland event without Marty there taking pictures.  Then, with each new issue, we would all flip to the back to see who made the photo spreads.

In 2012, Just Out transitioned from being a community newspaper to a glossy monthly magazine under the ownership and leadership of Joanthan Kipp and Eddie Glenn and the superb editorial direction of Alley Hector (and great graphics and layout by Horace Long).

Today’s Just Out features celebrity interviews, design ideas and tips, riveting columnists and an incredible resource guide to Portland’s LGBT businesses, social groups and events.  Just Out is a must read for residents and visitors alike.

Oooooh…and I think my favorite new column, starting with the January 2013 issue, is the look back at history in cooperation with GLAPN (Gay & Lesbian Archives of the Pacific Northwest).
