Sports Out Loud Changes Name to Compete, The Gay Sports Magazine

Tempe, Arizona-November 4, 2008-- Sports Out Loud, the world's only gay sports magazine, announced today that the groundbreaking magazine will re-launch as Compete, beginning with its January February 2009 issue.

While in the process of choosing a new name, the publishers of Sports Out Loud were inspired by Billie Jean King. During a conversation, King spoke of her toughest competitor being herself. The Compete name speaks to the common drive to overcome personal limitations in sports and in life.

"The decision to re-launch Compete was made to recognize the gay athlete's desire to compete and achieve. The magazine has proven that it appeals to athletes and non-athletes alike," said Eric Carlyle, co-founder and publisher.

"Over the last year, the buzz on our magazine has been so positive, even overwhelming," said Editor in Chief Buddy Early. "We know that our readers look forward to each new issue and we definitely see momentum building as we move forward."

When Compete launches January 15, readers will recognize the same focus that Sports Out Loud sought to fulfill, yet with new content and a new look. The re-launch comes with a new interactive Web site which will be introduced on December 15, 2008. Special subscription rates of $5 are being offered to those who act before December 15, 2008.

Compete, The Gay Sports Magazine offers the gay community the latest, best, and most comprehensive sports information both locally and globally. We connect and inspire our readers to get involved in and participate in sports. The company's Web site is www.competemag.com. Media inquiries should be directed to press@competemag.com.
