Pink magazine

Pink was one of the first teen magazines for girls and an alternative to Jackie in the 1970s. It featured lots of pop gossip, pin-ups, make-up, fashion advice and the essential problem page which, of course, is now the norm. However, it also had great comic strips like 'Sugar Jones' who was the bitchiest pop diva in the world. I wonder now who was the inspiration for it. Anyway, I kept all my copies of Pink but, when I left home in the 80s, my Mum took the opportunity to throw them out. I did eventually forgive her. And still have a treasured Annual from 1975.

    I so remember it ! It was the daring, naughty, well upfront alternative to Jackie. The Pink problem page made Jackie's Cathy&Clare look like a pair of nuns. The stories dealt with harsh realities like violence and sexual desire and crime and drugs... It's on EBay now....

      Ooooh yes, I remember Pink magazine so well and loved it! I will always remember the very first issue, it had a free pink bubble bath in a sachet, which was stuck with cellotape on the side! Would love to see that particular front cover again!! .....
