We recently asked our audience to rate our trustworthiness as a brand. Overall 97% of our readers thought our brand was in the highest three categories of trustworthiness.
We asked how distinct our offering was compared to our rivals. 95% of our audience said our content was somewhat different to very different. Just 5% thought our articles were samey.
Not ignoring our core audience
We asked whether other LGBT+ title were “ignoring gay and bisexual men’s causes” and were stunned by the response.
Over two-thirds of our core audience though that LGBT+ media were centring other stories over gay and bisexual men. Meaning that many readers felt alienated by the media that is there, in part, to serve them.
Likely to suggest us to friends
Over 89% of our readers said that they would, or might suggest us to their friends to read.

We have many sections which can help us to showcase your brand to an engaged audience. From Love and Sex to Health to Well-Being. We offer these on a rolling contract basis. Your brand will be seen on all articles previously produced as well as any produced in your contracted time.
At the end of the contract, your branding will be removed from all content.
