 Luxury lifestyle media group MOD Media announces the launch of EXUBERANCE, a luxury design and lifestyle magazine that embraces and celebrates the LGBTQ identity—the first of its kind in New York. The glossy quarterly publication will feature curated content spotlighting top influencers and style-makers, events, culture, travel, home interiors, fashion, theater and art.

Through extensive exploration and study of the LGBT community, market data show that LGBT consumers spent $917 billion annually on products and services.* The community is passionate about their identity and loyal to marketers who acknowledge and support them: 55% of the LGBT community want to do business with companies that support them.** Keeping that in mind, EXUBERANCE’s editorial content will reflect modern life, explore culture and innovation, and feature compelling stories about the influencers and icons from fashion, art, design and beyond. World-renowned interior designer David Mann graces the cover of the premiere issue, which will be in homes by October 1, 2017, in recognition and honor of LGBTQ history month. Every issue will pay homage to important moments in LGBTQ culture in a section called Touchstone, which features Stonewall in the first edition.

EXUBERANCE Editorial Director Jason Kontos remarks, “I am thrilled that EXUBERANCE has finally come to life after years of being just an idea in my head. This publication is a celebration of the LGBTQ community, and I believe that New Yorkers have been waiting for a media brand like this for some time. With the launch of a niche publication, we wish to acknowledge the contributions of this community, and by doing so, encourage and promote inclusiveness and understanding.”

EXUBERANCE Publisher Lisa Ben-Isvy adds: “Having spent years immersed in both the fashion and design industries, surrounded by fabulously talented LGBTQ friends, coworkers and peers, I am beyond thrilled to support and encourage the community's creativity through EXUBERANCE. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our partners who are making this beautiful magazine possible through their unwavering support.”

The media house plans to have a controlled circulation of 40,000 which will include mailed copies direct to the homes of LGBTQ community members, strategic bulk distribution to LGBTQ organizations, design showrooms, social events, retail locations and newsstands.        

MOD Media President and Group Publisher Shannon Steitz says, "MOD Media has grown exponentially in 2017, and we view the addition of EXUBERANCE as a natural extension of our ever-growing portfolio of niche publications and media brands.”

The magazine will premiere at a star-studded event—in the typical MOD Media extravagant style—on Thursday, October 12 at the hottest new luxury rooftop lounge in Manhattan, Lovage. For the first time ever, in partnership with Franco Vitella Catered Affairs and Jim Barns of NJ Drone Academy, hors d'oeuvres will be served through sleek, innovative LED drone trays. Taking the party experience to new levels, FAA-certified pilots will fly the drones to landing pads where guests can take what they please while being entertained by live music and swinging aerialist performers.
