"One of our top goals for 2013 is to enter the digital world in a big way," says Wafa Kanan, ALO's publisher and editorial director. "With Magzter's 3.5 million users around the world, we are pleased that English speaking readers from many nations can now explore and experience the lands and peoples of a region often misunderstood and regularly misrepresented in the popular media. In addition, we are confident our global digital strategy will provide new opportunities for international advertisers to take advantage of the growing purchasing power of this diverse and increasingly affluent region."

Not beholden to any religious or political viewpoint, ALO has the freedom to address controversial topics with utmost candor. In our current issue, readers dive into a fascinating story by Prof. Mehdi Noorbaksh of Harrisburg University on the Arab Spring, why it erupted and how it will change the world. Rima Fakih, the 2010 Miss USA, takes off the gloves and speculates on the prejudice that may have kept her from taking home the Miss Universe crown in the follow-up competition. Fakih's unabashed interview takes on the beauty pageant system, America's unfounded misperceptions of Middle Eastern-Americans and her friendship with the Miss USA pageant owner Donald Trump.

In a profound first person account, a post-college Arab-American woman details her life between two worlds as she navigates through life in America while still being bound to traditions and restrictions of her immigrant parents. Noted travel journalist J. Patrick Adams tells how it feels to be an American in Beirut while we also bring stories from Dubai, Cappadocia, Turkey; and Dearborn, Michigan. We bring readers the latest in fashion trends, take you backstage at the Oscars, reveal the mysteries of Lebanese cuisine, and open the door to one of the art world's best kept secrets.

The cover artists Sixx and Kasem have autographed a limited number of the current print issues for sale. These can be ordered from www.alomagazine.com with proceeds going to aid charitable causes focusing on literature, arts and culture.

ALO magazine appears four times a year and can be downloaded at Magzter for $3.99 per issue.
