The August issue of Options Magazine explores the history of gay bars in Rhode Island!

The  August issue is published in it’s entirety right here on our website.  Visit our In This Issue page to check it out, and then hop over to the archives to dive into past issues.


Join us for a drink as we celebrate the release of our August issue!

On Sunday August 3rd our team will be celebrating the release of our August issue at The Stable Providence located at 125 Washington Street.  Join us from 3-6pm and chat with the Options team and supporters.  No cover or charge for this event.  Tell your friends you coming on Facebook by joining our event listing.

The release party is also a great opportunity to help us get Options out to all our distribution sites! Taking a stack of magazines as you leave and dropping them off at a cafe, bar, or restaurant that is on our list and near our house is extremely helpful. Interested in hearing more about volunteering? Email us at or just stop by on Sunday.
