XY Magazine is the world’s most loved gay magazine. On sale in all bookstores including Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million, it has been the largest newsmagazine for young gay men, since 1996.  (At times, we have had the highest retail sale of any gay magazine.) Until 2007, the ex- XY.Com was the largest young gay mens’ social network before Facebook and Grindr, with 500,000+ members.

XY is an L3C Foundation to benefit the LGBT community. If you like what we’re doing, please make a donation. If you have never seen XY, order yours or subscribe today. XY is a cure for the blues, and is guaranteed to improve your life. 😉   And, if you are coming out, check our 200-page Survival Guide — (“Everything you need to know about being young and gay.”)

XY takes a lot of photos. If you would like to model, submit your photos here.  😉

Hey! Barnes and Noble made xy50 magazine of the month!  XY#50 and XY#51 each weigh a whole pound, and XY#50 is the BIGGEST ISSUE ever!  Check the articles about us on NewNow Next, MagazineBlog and Huffington Post.

During the financial crisis, XY was liquidated by venture capital investors who sold the valuable XY.Com domain name to a Chinese game developer.  Between 2010 and 2015 we published as supersexy B Magazine, which you can order here — but Peter & the original XY team were able to reassemble the rights in 2015, and we are back to XY Magazine, our original name.

XY is for everyone. We welcome original and new readers of all ages and planets. Welcome back!
