Parenting and progressive politics didn’t coexist, at least in print, until the emergence of a pair of Bay Area-based publications that made a point of speaking to that audience. Hip Mama, addressed to mothers, came first, and inspired a counterpart for fathers, called Hip Dad. Both magazines have recently gone through some internal changes, and are doing a series of re-launch events, including one in Santa Rosa this weekend. Here’s Bruce Robinson with more.
Ariel Gore, the founder and editor-publisher of Hip Mama magazine and Tomas Munoz, editor of Rad Dad, will both be at the re-launch party for their publications Saturday evening at the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa, at 7:30 pm.
