AJ McKenna is a white heterosexual man who is seen here comparing Tamikka Brents, a mixed martial arts fighter, a black woman and a lesbian, to Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist.
In 2014, it is understood that GLBT Media does not prioritize the interests of actual Women, but use Men who identify as Women as stand-ins. The Gay Man responsible for hiring McKenna, Lee Williscroft-Ferris, lauded his decision to hire McKenna thusly:
Finally, I have been determined that calling ourselves an ‘LGBT magazine’ means exactly that. To that end, I have aimed to ensure that trans* readers and issues are a fully integrated element of our work. I was delighted when AJ McKenna came on board as our Deputy Editor; (his) tireless commitment to furthering awareness of all things trans* has truly enhanced our output.
