Best Lifestyle/Health Magazines New York 2002 - POZ AND MAMM
The folks at POZ aren't lying that this mag for people affected by HIV and AIDS is "accessible and isn't homework." Liz Taylor was even on the cover! Both intellectually rigorous and actually useful, POZ is available for free to any person who is HIV positive and cannot afford a subscription (and there's a Spanish-language version, POZ en Español). POZ Publishing also runs a sister operation, MAMM, for women affected by breast and reproductive cancers; they boast contributors like renowned academic Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and artist Jenny Holzer. POZ AND MAMM, the brainchildren of pub-lishing maestro Sean O'Brien Strub, are practical without being dumbed-down or antiseptic; they boast high-culture connections but remain resolutely anti-snobby.
