Heed Magazine Launches Inaugural Digital Issue Friday, March 26, 2010

Brooklyn, NY, March 26, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Heed magazine, the voice of an emerging subculture, is pleased to announce the launch of its inaugural digital issue on Friday, March 26, 2010. The focus of the issue is Diversity. Heed Is an urban-based quarterly digital publication focused on expressing positive, diverse and spiritual perspectives on our generation as it relates to current events, politics and popular culture. Heed is available at Zinio.com and online at http://www.heedmag.com.

“Through music, arts, culture, social class and ethnicity we applaud both commonality and originality.” says founder and publisher Saoul Vanderpool. “The United States boasts one of the most diverse populations of any other country but we fail to truly stand together on a united front. I chose diversity as the theme of our launch issue to represent and celebrate the true image of our country. Breaking down the feeble barriers of antipathy among ourselves opens a door to the greater possibilities unity offers by virtue of love.”
