3 September 2012 – the first global rolling gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender news, entertainment and travel site is taking the world by storm.

GSN has only been live for nine months but has soared past its targets with massive monthly audience growth averaging 46% per month. We have now reached 538,000 unique visitors (different people visiting the site) in August – and they checked out more than 861,000 pages.

It shows how GSN is rapidly becoming the leading choice for LGBT news in over 200 countries worldwide.

The GSN team is headed up by experienced gay journalists, editors and marketing gurus Tris Reid-Smith and Scott Nunn.

Scott, director of marketing and sales, said: ‘We are delighted with our rapid progress. It really shows that there is strength in bringing quality news and marketing to a global audience.’

Tris, the editor, said: ‘So many people have supported us and been excited by what we are achieving which is why we have surged forwards like this. We promise to work even harder to fulfil the potential that people have seen in GSN in our early months.’

GSN is constantly chatting with our readers and clients to find out what they want and do our job better. This has contributed to us having just over 53,000 social media fans on a number of platforms – the largest for a LGBT news platform in Europe.

To add to the celebrations, our editor Tris Reid-Smith has also been nominated for an LGBT Entrepreneur of Excellence Award for his part in starting GSN.

Thank you for your continued support and interest in all things GSN and the positive change we continue to make within the industry.
