Xtra has earned its readers’ respect for its in-depth coverage of the issues important to LGBT people and a commitment to exploring the many ways in which our diverse communities express themselves.

Our defining activity is queer journalism through an unapologetic, queer and sex-positive lens. We bring to the forefront voices from our diverse communities and stories that are not told elsewhere. We challenge sexual stigma, and we aspire to support and strengthen a new generation of activists and allies in our evolving communities. We ask hard questions within our communities and scrutinize our communities’ members and organizations whenever necessary. We engage our readers to think, feel, act and grow, and to celebrate the many expressions of who we are.
