Teen Magazines Have Gone Queer and Here's Why

Teen magazines like Teen Vogue, Seventeen and others have become the platforms of choice for LGBTQ teens to come out. For example, when Hunger Games star Amandla Stenberg decided she was ready to come out as bisexual, she chose to do so on Teen Vogue's snapchat account and the other teen focused publications picked it up and shared it across their social media platforms and websites. Teen focused publications have come to realize that they have to broaden their focus when it comes to the content they publish, to ensure that they're are reaching all teens, or at least as many of them as possible.
Teen magazines—canonized as packed with dating tips and eye candy for young, heterosexual, female readers—have gone queer. More specifically, mainstream teen titles are slowly shifting toward pages and websites full of LGBTQ voices and visibility, reflecting a broad consensus that in order to survive, broadening their editorial perspective beyond a traditionally heterosexual readership isn't just good business, it's imperative to reach teens today.
