Funding Sought for 429 Magazine

If you're thinking 420 might be a more fitting name for a new LGBT print magazine in this media environment, you're not alone. But listen to the pitch and decide if you'd like to make a contribution toward the start-up's $10,000 goal. It would be great if it took off -- they've got Kevin Sessums on board as EIC, dreams of featuring up-and-coming talents and a piece by Salman Rushdie planned for the premiere issue -- although I can't help but think of Tina Brown's Talk and her recent attempt to relaunch Newsweek. (And didn't she burn through this kind of money on one lunch?) Am rooting for you guys, good luck!
