2021 is an important milestone for Be-Mag and rollerblading culture. What started out as a newsletter sent out on Christmas day 1996 has gone on to create an indelible mark on a global community a quarter of a century later. Be-Mag represents and reports the aspirations of generations of rollerbladers through the triumphs and turbulence of our shared collective history. It has offered a sense of belonging from its inception. Whether it be friends banding together to bind it as an entity, an infamous messageboard where allegiances were made, or welcoming submissions from our supporters, Be-Mag has always aligned itself with the skate community’s core sentiment of inclusion. On the quadranscentennial of our journey, we renew our commitment to this never-ending goal, to the people that made it possible in the first place — you, our readers.
As we come to this milestone in our history, we invite you to celebrate our journey in rollerblading as much as your own in making it. Support us in creating the next chapter in our magazine. We have created a Patreon support page where our loyal readers can show your support by pledging a monetary contribution of your choice or by choosing one of our tiered monthly payment plans. Our mission is to use your contributions toward putting out original features, paying content makers and skaters, creating a print magazine again and keeping blading’s oldest media company going another twenty five years.
