GAY TIMES and our predecessor titles have been around for nearly 50 years. A lot has changed in that time.
We’ve been there for the significant moments in our community’s history - and will be there for everything to come. From the early days of the Gay Liberation Front, to the repeal of Section 28 and throughout the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, we have been a vital resource for LGBTQ+ people during periods of dangerous misinformation and violent rhetoric.
We continue that journey today for a new generation, supporting trans rights, Black Lives Matter and the banning of conversion therapy in the UK and across the globe, amongst many of the challenges LGBTQ+ people still face.
Today, in 2021, our community and company have never been stronger. Over the last two years, we have carefully monitored changes to the print publication of GAY TIMES Magazine.
In this time we’ve noticed a strong change in how our audience consumes the magazine. Approximately 98% of readers now enjoy GAY TIMES Magazine in digital formats; via our website, app or Apple News+.
Just 2% of total readers enjoy GAY TIMES Magazine in its print form. Both us and our readers are also increasingly conscious of the environmental impact of print.
Therefore, we have made the decision to stop printing GAY TIMES Magazine - but it will continue and expand on other platforms.
However, we know that millions of you love interacting with us on our digital and social platforms - so we are currently making the biggest single investment in these platforms in the history of our company.
