Letter from the Editor
By Joslyn Hatfield
2021 has arrived and I am delighted to usher in the new year by writing my first letter to the Las Vegas LGBTQ+ community as the editor of Las Vegas PRIDE Magazine. We have closed the door on one of the most challenging years in modern history. The world has changed and we have too.
So much so that it would be comical to try to summarize everything we overcame. You were there. And we made it. I’ll leave it at that. We are clearly not out of the woods yet, but I can’t help but embrace the coming months with a hopeful heart.
I am excited to present the most talented and diverse PRIDE Magazine staff ever. We’ve aligned our content strategy to our mission to be a true LGBTQ+ community resource. And we are introducing an optimized digital offering to reflect media consumption habits in the age of COVID-19 and beyond.
Our first issue is dedicated to stories of LGBTQ+ womxn and allies. These are many of the womxn who move us. They educate us, entertain us and the most importantly, inspire us. And so, we start the year by celebrating the undeniable power of womxn like we never have before.
We may want to forget 2020, but I implore you, please don’t. Reflect on the extraordinary events (bad and good). And steady yourself for the journey ahead. We need each other now more than ever. Welcome to the Las Vegas PRIDE Womxn’s Issue.
Editor, Las Vegas PRIDE Magazine
