Audrey Magazine, or also known as Audrey, was an award-winning national publication covering the Asian experience, as seen from the perspective of Asian American women. Published quarterly throughout the U.S.[1]

History

The first issue of the magazine hit newsstands in March 2003.[2] The magazine was named after the publisher's daughter to acknowledge that many Asian American women have English names.

Audrey covered Asians and Asian Americans in popular culture, fashion and beauty trends, lifestyle and travel, as well as social and cultural issues relevant to Asians and Asian Americans. Its sister publication was KoreAm.[3] In its 10-year history, Audrey has been an important voice, covering stories well before the mainstream media picks them up, whether it is Asian plastic surgery, an emerging Asian American talent, or the K-pop craze. The magazine has featured Asian and Asian American celebrities on its cover, including Frieda Pinto, Maggie Q and Olivia Munn. The magazine is based in Gardena, California.

Audrey and its sister publication KoreAm were acquired by London Media Trust in 2014.[4] The last print issues of the magazine and KoreAm was published in December 2015.[3][4]
