Gay Times (stylized in all caps), also known as Gay Times Magazine, is a LGBTQ media brand established in 1975.[2] Originally beginning as a magazine for gay and bisexual men, the company now includes content for the LGBTQ community across a number of platforms - including a now quarterly print publication,[3] a website updated daily with news and culture content, and a number of social media platforms.[4]

Publication and content[edit]

GAY TIMES Magazine is published quarterly in the United Kingdom and distributed globally,[5] and includes celebrity interviews, fashion, news, features, music, film, style and travel. GAY TIMES also features an online site[6] as well as social promotion channels[7] under the brand name.

The magazine is published by Gay Times Ltd. The current CEO of Gay Times Ltd. is Tag Warner,[8] who was appointed in January 2019.[9]

The magazine hosts The Gay Times Honours, an awards ceremony celebrating figures in and beyond the LGBT+ community for their contributions.[10] This began in 2017, and has continued since.[11]

In popular culture[edit]

  • In the 1996 film Beautiful Thing, Jamie's theft of a copy of Gay Times (issue 200) from a newsagent for himself and Ste to find gay venues to go to is a key plot element.
