New global gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender news and entertainment site,, is now live.

During our December beta testing month we are inviting opinion leaders, contacts, friends and industry insiders to take a look at the site and gain feedback. Then early in January we will go fully live to the general public.

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

Tris, the editor, said: ‘We are determined to offer quality journalism with continually updated content from full and part-time journalists working around the globe.

‘And while we’re proud of the site so far, we’ve only just started investing in it. There are big improvements and additions planned and we’ve set aside a chunk of our development budget to respond to our readers’ suggestions to make Gay Star News a site they’ll use and love.’

Scott added: ‘GSN is setting out to be the best in a market where fresh ideas and quality are desperately needed by readers, advertisers, sponsors and partners. We can only become the best by listening to what people want and delivering it.

‘We’ve secured major investment to get us this far and hope you’ll want to join us and follow our progress.’

Please send your ideas and comments to [email protected]. We’d love to hear from you.

Meanwhile you can see all our contact information below, so you can get in touch with any stories you think we may want to cover or speak to us about advertising and sponsorship opportunities.

You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter so you can join the adventure as we build a world-beating LGBT news and entertainment website.
