    “I wanted to create a work-safe LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered) news service that people really could read with confidence in the office.”

    That’s what I like most about PinkNews.

    Interesting story. Who knew?

    Thank you, Adam

    Interesting contrast with the Lord Brown story: Cohen has succeeded as a gay man, Brown closetted himself away: perhaps times are changing.

    Ben-If you read this-I was amazed you didn`t mention PinkNews in your Sunday Times column last week- and no mention of it in Radio Times either!! Why not-its a huge success and a massive tribute to your endurance!

    John,

    Thanks. I’m not 100% sure why I didn’t mention it. Mainly because the Sunday Times etc needed a narrative that ended with failure, then switching to Channel4 News. PinkNews is a mized bag, it is a huge editorial success and the thing I’m most proud of in the world, but commercially it’s not so true, it’s a hard market and one we’re only just making money from. Even then, it all goes back into the website to pay for more journalism.

    On the balance of everything, I should have mentioned it.
