FourTwoNine Magazine Makes 'Friends' With Premiere Issue

If you contributed to the Kickstarter campaign for the new LGBT magazine FourTwoNine then you'll be happy to know the premiere issue just went to press. (The theme of Issue 1 is frienship.) Gracing its cover are Andy Cohen and Sarah Jessica Parker, who discuss their longtime membership in the Mutual Admiration Society. The debut also covers the friendships of Calvin Trillin/Larry Kramer and Thom Browne/Andrew Bolton, as well as articles by Salman Rushdie, Michael Cunningham, and Amy Siskind, new poems by National Book Award winner Mark Doty, and works by photographers Ruven Afanador, Christian Witkin and Torkil Gudnason.

Here's what editor in chief and friend of KIT212 Kevin Sesssums had to say about it:
This is the cover of the premiere issue of FourTwoNine magazine - for those who haven't seen it yet. There's much more inside than what is highlighted on the cover. Can't wait for everyone to read it and see it and hear the feedback in a few weeks. It all went to the printers this afternoon. Thanks to everyone on my staff who helped make our vision of this magazine come true. The hard work put in by my young co-workers has inspired me as their Editor in Chief. They are more than my young colleagues; they are my true and tested friends. 
On to No. 2.
