PRESSING QUESTIONS: Quest Magazine of Green Bay, Wisconsin

PRESSING QUESTIONS:  Quest Magazine of Green Bay, Wisconsin | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising | Scoop.it
PPQ: When did you launch your publication, and what inspired you to do it?
Publisher Mark Mariucci: February 1993. At that time, I owned a large dance club in Green Bay. The main LGBT media publication was called In Step and mostly covered Milwaukee where it was based. I hoped to level the playing field a bit by publishing a cheaper publication that small bars in little cities could afford and also give them, along with my bar, more coverage of events. We always distributed in Milwaukee, but we also were in every city that had at least one gay bar back then.
