LOS ANGELES — Unzipped Media has released its November issue of Unzipped magazine featuring performer Diesel Washington as a vampire feasting on his prey, Cameron Marshall.

The digital issue is available today at Unzipped.net and the print edition also has hit select bookstores.

According to Executive Editor Rick Andreoli, the latest issue denotes the publication’s new presentation.

"We're very excited about the November issue because it marks some significant changes for the magazine," Andreoli said. "We’re now shooting original covers and layouts based on a specific editorial theme. In this case, the cover features two hot nude men, but it's not about porn or the porn industry."

Adding to the new design, Unzipped.net is featuring video interviews with Washington are shown on, while the nude photo sets are only available in the print edition.

"People think web and print are mutually exclusive, but we're proving with this issue that we can create a multiplatform gay publication that readers are going to eagerly seek out," Andreoli said.

New sections on art and culture have been added to the magazine. Writer Dave White has an article on erotic artist Brian Murphy and art almanac They Shoot Homos Don’t They? creator Shannon Michael Cane. In addition, Michael Andersen covers the new Bruce La Bruce project “L.A. Zombie” starring French performer François Sagat.

The November issue also contains features on newcomer Alessio Romero, HardHeroes.com performers and Van Darkholme, bondage expert and mastermind behind BoundGods.com.
