Transgender Universe

Maven is an expert-driven, group media network, whose innovative platform serves, by invitation-only, a coalition of professional, independent channel partners. By providing broader distribution, greater community engagement and efficient advertising and membership programs, Maven enables partners to focus on the key drivers of their business: creating, informing, sharing, discovering, leading and interacting with the communities and constituencies they serve.

“The Maven platform provides the opportunity for our readers to engage with transgender-related content in ways that we previously only dreamed we could deliver. Our community members now have the ability to post their own content, share their own stories, post relevant articles from other places, share videos, and anything else they deem relevant to our community,” says Senior Editor of Transgender Universe, Mila Madison. “Our community is now able to shape our direction by how they choose to interact with us. Essentially we are handing over the keys to the house to our readers. Our goal is to create a hub for all transgender related media by opening our doors to anyone who creates content for the community,” adds Madison.
