The Collapse of Gay MediaPosted: December 12, 2019
The gay community in the western world had a reasonably strong print media presence around the start of the century, including glossy magazines, and newspapers. Gay Star News, SX, The Advocate; they were numerous.
But in the short years following the legalisation of gay marriage, much of that media presence has crumbled, from the UK, to Australia to the USA.
Why? My theory is that it’s because ‘gay’ has gone largely mainstream, and gay people no longer feel a need to subscribe to specifically gay publications.
