Owners Of OUT Magazine and the ADVOCATE Have Donated To Anti-LGBT Republicans

The new owners of OUT magazine and the ADVOCATE are the stepbrothers Adam Levin and Maxx Abramowitz, they are the founders and operators of Oreva Capital, which last September under the umbrella of PRIDE Media acquired the two LGBT publications along with related brands and intellectual property. They are also, respectively, the chief executive officer and lead investor of High Times magazine parent High Times Holdings.

However, it turns out the two new owners have given money to anti-LGBT politicians who have worked against that community.

Levin has donated to a number of Republicans including Devin Nunes, Dean Heller and Josh Mandel (all of whom have publicly taken anti-LGTBQ stances, like supporting religion-based discrimination), and Dana Rohrabacher (who recently said gay people can be denied the right to buy a home and has consistently opposed legal advancements for the LGTB community).

You know what to do…….

  1. There needs to be more news of this! That is unacceptable. No other gay news site has mentioned boo about this.

    I stopped my subscription years ago, glad I did!

  2. I love this. However, the LGBTQI community is more concerned with looking good for the cameras and having a party.

    Case in point: the numerous Pride events annually that are sponsored by companies that took away our rights, like Comcast and Verizon, companies charged with massive fraud, like Wells Fargo, and companies that engage in deplorable business practices, like Nike.

    These are the same events where numerous people will talk about things like fairness and equity and think nothing of allying themselves with crooks and exploiters.

    This is why I no longer go and no longer serve on the local Pride Board and have decided to focus my energy on things that matter that don’t sell you down the river for a dollar or throw the most vulnerable under the bus.

What do you think?
