Diario SUR has launched its new SIX Magazine, a publication that seeks to delve into the social reality, current affairs and LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) culture through a series of reports, interviews, information and articles from an LGBT point of view, but with the goal of making it interesting and inclusive for all readers, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
At a recent presentation of this new publication, Manilva’s Councillor for Foreigners, Dean Tyler Shelton, met with the director of the Diario Sur, the team of Sur in English, the president of the Asociación Colega, Santiago Rubio, who unconditionally supported the Manilva Pride.
Malaga and the Costa del Sol have historically been welcoming to the LGBT collective, Manilva, through the Manilva Pride event, has also become an important reference.
Although society has come a long way, homophobia is still a blight that needs to be eradicated; an action in which the media have an important role. That is the main motivation from which the magazine is born: to make visible the collective through diverse and quality content within the framework of a pioneering publication.
The Olympic swimmer Carlos Peralta, 21 times champion of Spain, committed to the aforementioned Councillor Shelton to be part of the Manilva Pride team for 2019 as a speaker at talks, conducting workshops on LGBT awareness and equality.
