Just products that you’re hocking… If we’re doing a review feature we’ll put our media requests via the normal outlets. If you wish to know which ones these are please call the newsdesk.

Will you add our link to your article?

Sure we can, if it adds to the user’s experience. Broken links can be updated if you let us know about them.

Do you review restaurants?

Yes, we do. Please contact Newsdesk for details.

We love products, please do send. To get our mailing address please send your request through the newsdesk. Sending us your product does not automatically mean we’ll publish a review about it.

Can we get the product back?

Unfortunately not. Products sent to will not be returned unless there’s been a specific agreement. You can read our review terms and conditions here. All returns must be paid for by the marketer or PR. THEGAYUK is not responsible for handling, shipping or any costs. We will not send back any products that have been used in conjunction with our systems (i.e. computer/tech) this is due to data protection issues. Due to health and safety we will not send back personal clothing items, such as underwear/swimwear or other personal items. We will also not accept any items that have been previously used for personal use.

LGBT+ media is under threatCan you help?

We’re aiming to be ad-free and we can with your help. With Facebook and Google hoovering up most of the ad spend in the UK, it’s never been harder to be a publisher – let alone a niché publisher.
