Ten years ago, members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community browsed classified ads in niche publications to find the best places to mingle, drink and meet. Now the Internet offers quicker alternatives, and the LGBT community appears to want more from its magazines than tips on night life. Recognizing this shift, the LGBT magazine Frontiers on Thursday will announce a revamp under new Chief Executive Michael Turner. ON LOCATION: Where the cameras roll The 32-year-old biweekly L.A.-based magazine has an estimated readership of about 90,000 people per issue and a staff of 19. Turner, who has spent 25 years providing private equity, financial advisory, transaction and valuation services for a variety of companies, bought the publication this month for $361,000 when it was in Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Mindy Kaling has slammed the lid down on the brouhaha surrounding her Elle magazine cover, one of four shots featuring different ladies for the mag's Women in TV Issue.
