Summary: add some history

Changed:

< ; 2004-09 : WayvesMagazine goes electronic! After years and years (and ''years'') of waxing and pasting, the printer said "Join the modern age!" So we did. Now Wayves is assembled by many volunteers electronically, by submitting articles and photographs and suggestions to mailto:submissions@wayves.ca, and then the magazine is designed, edited and assembled in Adobe !InDesign and -- shipped to the printers electronically.

> ; 2004-09 : WayvesMagazine switches to !InDesign computer layout instead of tradtional wax & layout sheets - probably one of the last publications anywhere to do so; our printer was dropping the capability to make negs, strip and make plates photographically.


WayvesMagazine Wayves is the voice of Atlantic Canadian gay, lesbian, transgendered & queer people and their friends including GayWriters.

Formerly a print magazine, in December, 2012, Wayves switched to on line only.

Wayves is a volunteer collective created by readers like you, so if you think there should be something in Wayves, write it up and send it! Wayves is always looking for queer-related news, reviews, and events, and especially photos. If you're not sure, email and ask -- we don't bite!

This encyclopedia contains the Nova Scotia portion of the Wayves' GroupsAndServices database.
