It’s an interesting decision coming on the heels of Teen Vogue’s wunderkind Phillip Picardi taking over the reigns at Out magazine.
The 28-year-old Stafford would be the first Editor-in-Chief of color at the 50 year old magazine.
“Zach is a tenacious and talented risk taker, journalist and editorial leader who will help lead The Advocate to become the undisputed leader in the LGBTQ community for breaking news and in-depth reporting on the communities we serve,” Nathan Coyle, CEO of Pride Media, owner of The Advocate, told NBC News in an emailed statement.
