Gay Star News named Publication of the Year by Stonewall
02 November 2012 Print This Article

Stonewall is Britain’s leading campaign organization for lesbian, gay and bisexual people and its awards are a highlight of the UK’s LGBT calendar, celebrating the brightest and the best.

This is a proud moment for GSN; to be recognized for such a prestigious award is an incredible achievement in just under a year.

Our rapid growth, both in readership and recognition illustrates the positive change we’ve made in this competitive market. Last month alone our site had just over 580,000 unique visitors (different people visiting the site).

Gay Star News went head-to-head with globally famous publications such as The Evening Standard, DC Comics and Tatler magazine – an achievement in itself.

Director Scott Nunn, said: ‘To win an award from an organization we admire and respect as much as Stonewall is amazing. To win against such prestigious competitors is doubly so.’

GSN editor and director Tris Reid-Smith added: ‘We really do owe all our success to our amazing readers, followers, clients, supporters, friends and the GSN team who work 24-7 to bring you the latest news.’

The ceremony took place on Thursday 1 November at the V&A museum in London. Familiar faces at this year’s ceremony included host Gok Wan, Sue Perkins, Dr. Christian Jessen and many more.

Once again we would like to thank our fans and Stonewall. We wouldn’t be this far ahead in under a year without your continued support. Stay tuned for more exciting developments in 2013 when we will be working even harder to make a positive change worldwide.
