Centerline Magazine

Have you enjoyed the reporting and articles in the New Haven Pride Center’s Pride Guide in the past? Miss having a Connecticut LGBTQ+ publication?

In June 2018, the New Haven Pride Center Center launched an LGBTQ+ News Publication titled Centerline Magazine! The goal of Centerline Magazine is to tell our stories, from our viewpoint. Articles and photo spreads contained in Centerline Magazine aim to highlight the diversity of our community, represent different corners of our state, and share the histories and views that make Connecticut’s LGBTQ+ community special.

With state-wide distribution, Centerline Magazine will feature LGBTQ+ news articles, opinion pieces, arts & culture highlights, and more! Pick-up a copy at your favorite LGBTQ+ spot or download issues below. Click here to see our distribution list. Is there a place missing from our distribution list? Let us know.
