There are changes happening behind the scenes at Gaydar. We’re launching a brand new LGBTQ+ editorial website full of news, features and much more.

But to do that, we need writers to contribute articles, features and opinion pieces about LGBTQ+ life in 2018.

We want to present a realistic view of the LGBTQ+ community that covers our triumphs and success to our fears and heartbreak. The platform we’re launching is about more than the G and we’ll focus just as much on the L, B, T and Q in society.

We want to tell stories from inside (and of interest to) the LGBTQ+ community that aren’t being heard elsewhere with original journalism and a fresh approach to what people are already talking about.

A focus on positivity

We want to tell stories from the LGBTQ+ community for the LGBTQ+ community. They might be hilarious, sexy or heartbreaking but they will always be real and always be relatable and with a focus on positivity.

We’ll shed a light on corners of the LGBTQ+ world you might not have known were there and perhaps give you a new interest or hobby through articles on groups, subcultures and experiences you’ve never considered getting involved in.

But it won’t all be stories from real people – please make some room for our icons too. Our new site will always have time to celebrate the icons of our community from RuPaul to Carly Rae Jepsen, Kimmy Schmidt to Dua Lipa.

What we’re looking for

Your community: What are you and your friends talking about? Tell us about your groups, what makes you happy and the activities you do with other people from the LGBTQ+ community.

Your relationships: What stories do you have to tell about dating, sex, hook-ups love and relationships in the social media age?

Your heroes: Do you want to write 800 words on why Dua Lipa is the most important artist of the 21st century? WE WANT TO HEAR IT.

Opinion pieces: What’s on your mind? This is the place for you to share your views.

Loads of lists: What are the most cringe-worthy Drag Race moments ever? The most homophobic moments from Friends? Whack them all in a list and send it our way.

Interviews: Is there someone with an opinion you think should be heard by the LGBTQ+ community?

We want to talk about gender, politics, sex, relationships, dating, music, culture, travel, money, hook-ups, movies, comic books, video games, sport and everything that LGBTQ+ people love.

If this sounds like something you’d like to get involved in, drop me an email at michael@meanshappy.com with an idea of what you’d like to write about and lets chat.
