Originally started as a magazine, GAY TIMES proved to be a vital source for the LGBTQ+ community, fostering an audience hungry for representation at a time when LGBTQ+ communities in Britain faced social and political rejection. GAY TIMES Magazine has grown with the community over the past five decades, holding their hands through Section 28, the AIDS crisis, Pride celebrations and many other historic moments.
Gay Times: Winter 20/21
This year we’ve seen LGBTQ+ people achieve remarkable things. We’ve seen queer joy, happiness and success. Queer people continue to cultivate community and connection – even if we are socially distanced. And queer people have brought a lightness to many lives outside of our community, as well as within it. If the world is going to chuck a pandemic at us, we queers aren’t going to back down and just accept defeat. We rise. Every single time.
