Gay porn glossy 'Unzipped' zips up

Gay porn glossy Unzipped has folded, gay blog Queerty reported.

According to the website, staffers were made aware of the closure on Friday, March 12.

Here Media picked up Unzipped and two other stroke magazines, Men and Freshmen, when it acquired LPI Media. Men and Freshmen have already been knocked back from monthlies to quarterlies.

The Paul Colichman-led company also controls the iconic The Advocate and Out magazines.

When The Los Angeles Advocate first appeared as a newsletter in 1967, it was the nation's only publication devoted to gay news and politics. Evolving into The Advocate in the mid-70s, it remained the only gay news glossy available on newsstands nationwide.

But the gay media leader will now be trimmed down from a standalone magazine to a 32-page insert bundled inside its gay culture focused counterpart Out.

Queerty has also reported that freelance writers and photographers working for The Advocate have gone months without getting paid.

Here Media also owns leading LGBT websites Gay.com and PlanetOut.com, gay-friendly movie studio Regent Releasing and all-gay cabler here!

I've been trying to get some information for me and my fellow Unzipped Magazine subscribers. I've called several numbers from the magazine and even tried contacting them through Twitter. Nobody seems to be able to tell me what's going to happen to our subscriptions. I wonder if Here Media is planning on just ignoring their loyal magazine subscribers.

I'm curious too about my subscriptions .... any luck hearing back from them and getting a response?
