We are delighted to announce GSN is in the final shortlist for the Publication of the Year award by Stonewall – Britain’s leading gay rights organization.

Stonewall’s annual awards celebrate those who have made a positive impact on the lives of lesbian, gay and bisexual people in Britain. The glittering ceremony is a highlight of the gay calendar in the UK.

Coming just nine months after our launch, this award nomination shows the positive change we’re making in this competitive market and is a sign of why we’re continuing to grow month on month.

The awards see Gay Star News go head-to-head with established names: London Evening Standard, Attitude, Tatler and DC Comics. Being shortlisted with these well-known publications is an achievement in itself.

Scott Nunn, director of GSN, said: ‘Woohoo! It is an absolute honor to be nominated for such a prestigious award from such a widely respected organization alongside an incredibly impressive shortlist.

‘Our whole team around the world is delighted and we want to thank our readers, clients, supporters and friends for making GSN a success.’

The ceremony will take place on 1 November at the V&A museum in London.

The nomination comes just days after Tris Reid-Smith, our founder editor, won the LGBT Entrepreneur of the Year award at the National Diversity Awards 2012 for his role in starting GSN.

Gay Star News continues to expand its audience, client-base and social media reach.

We’re the world’s first 24-7 global rolling gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender news, entertainment and travel site.

GSN has only been live for nine months but has soared past its targets with massive monthly audience growth, averaging 46% per month.

We reached 538,000 unique visitors (different people visiting the site) in August – and they checked out more than 861,000 pages.

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