Covering Central Texas, 2006

Shout History, by publisher Rob Faubion (July 2020)

SHOUT Magazine was initially intended to be a summer financial "means to
an end" when we launched in 2004. No LGBTQ publications were covering
Austin or San Antonio at the time, so we started publishing a little monthly
arts & entertainment magazine to fill that niche.

Within 6 months, we had expanded to a statewide distribution with twice-monthly
issues, increased our print run by 10-fold, and became the primary arts /
entertainment LGBTQ mag for Texas. Initially, we printed 2,000 copies when our
distribution was just Austin and San Antonio. But somewhere in January of 2005,
we increased that to 5,000 when we started to go statewide, and eventually grew
it to 10,000 during 2005 as we spread out across Texas with our distribution.

Along the way, we secured some amazing interviews with a variety of
celebrities, and helped support many non-profits and charities across the
state. Our run ended like many Texas businesses - with the economic crash
in 2008 - but we are proud of having been a part of our collective history.

In2It, 2006

In2It Magazine was, quit simply, a bad idea. We had been publishing SHOUT Magazine for a couple of years as an
"in the sunshine" publication -- meaning we didn't accept any provocative or sexually-oriented advertising. That
allowed us to distribute SHOUT in high-visibility public locations such as Central Market, Whole Foods, etc. It also
brought mainstream advertiser to our LGBTQ publication at a time that marketing to the community was not yet in
fashion. When This Week in Texas ceased publishing, we saw an opportunity to pick up that mantle with a purely
"bar rag" that would include the bars, 1-900 numbers ad (anyone remember those?!), bath houses, etc., and half-
naked cover boys. We completely misjudged the market, and advertisers just didn't support the magazine. So after
three painfully-expensive months of weekly issues, we threw in the towel. It was a snazzy little magazine, but it was
already a dinosaur by the time it made its debut. -- Rob Faubion, Publisher, July 2020
