Wire Magazine (WireMag) is a Miami-based publication catering to the LGBT community. Rafa Carvajal, purchased the magazine 10 years ago and serves as its publisher and editor in chief. He manages to circulate 10,000 issues on a biweekly basis, and the magazine has done so for the past 28 years. This is an impressive feat considering the publication is totally free. Carvajal also ensures it provides a great snapshot of sociocultural options in Miami.
Some years prior, claims were made by other magazines that Miami is no longer the epicenter of gay life in South Florida. WireMag fought back tirelessly to defend Miami and the crown.
Perusing WireMag shows Miami still has much to offer those seeking dining, music, local nightlife, or festivals in the South Florida area. As a conscious addition, WireMag also devotes full pages to offerings of healthcare and HIV/STD testing in the area. This inclusion is an important reminder of personal health, especially the needs of the LGBT community.
