Text:Wellington's gay monthly newspaper, Up, is set to go national this Monday, putting it in direct competition with well-established national gay newspaper Express. "We have a different out-look, we are doing this how we want, without influence any businesses or funders. That should mean we produce a paper that's more interesting to people of our age group," says Andy Boreham, who along with Aaron Hailwood, edits Up. Both are 21. "We have a few columns that aren't done elsewhere in New Zealand," says Aaron. "Apart from the usual sex columnist and gossip columnist, we also have a Fag Hag column - where a straight female inclined to hang around gay men talks about her life - and a transgender column by Claudia McKay. This is part of our attempt to reach a wider appeal audience." The first national issue of Up will go on sale in stores nationwide on this Monday 29 September, and is also available from the paper's website.
