Xtra Magazine launched a Community feature to help LGBTQ2S+ folks share ideas and make connections. Members can think of it almost like a "global queer bar, bookstore or coffee shop," says Rachel Giese, Xtra's director of editorial.
In addition to features like commenting and subscribing, members of the Xtra Community can suggest ideas and chat safely with each other, allowing Xtra to hear directly from its audiences about what matters to them through the Viafoura platform.
Xtra's publisher, Pink Triangle Press, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The Xtra Community launched on Dec. 8, 2021. Everyone is encouraged to join—for free.
