PREF mag or Préférences Mag is a French bimonthly gay magazine founded in March 2004.[1] It is a competitor of the magazine Têtu. It is known for its high quality images among other attributes.[2] Although it is a leading prominent and well selling publication for the gay communities it comes to criticism for being politically bland and not embracing non-consemeristic aspirations.[1][3][4] They do include some more risque content including supportive of LGBT families and open-marriages in line with that of modern French culture.[5] They also are supportive of non-standard views of masculinity and how one's sexuality should conform to traditional models.[3]
