  1. Happy 5th Birthday! Keep up the great work.

  2. Happy birthday and congrats to Pinknews.

    I am sure the LGBT community appreciate the dedication your work offers in bringing to the fore news that are specifically LGBT-related. But I must say that your work during the last election stood out as one of its only kind hence unique. As awareness grew in the political fora, the LGBT community would have been left behind had you not been there and highlighting issues directly affecting us and making sure that these top politicians do not just shove gay people in the remotest part of their thinking…

    Weldone and all the best for the future.

  3. Happy Birthday! I like your mix of stories and I do feel you keep me informed. It’s nice to have a quick round-up of relevant events all on one easily useable site. I also think you strive for balance in acknowledging different opinions and I appreciate that.

    Happy Birthday!!!

  5. I visit PN every day that I can and there are new stories. Happy Birthday.

    One area for improvement would be the elimination of the needlessly derivative elements of many stories, that simply repeat things that have very often appeared in PN articles on the same topic several times before.

  6. Congratualtions on five years of hard work that has paid off. Nice going and Happy Birthday may Pinknews have many more birthdays

  7. Many Happy Returns

  8. Very happy 5th birthday. May you have many more. Keep up the good work.

  9. Many many congratulations on your first five years.When I first came out what we have today was a distant dream.Many paid such a heavy price for what we have today. Let’s value it.

  10. Congratulations on this anniversary.
    As an ex-British gay person who left the UK 17 years ago to live in the then far gay-friendlier Netherlands, I have found your site very valuable in documenting the enormous changes in attitude towards pink issues which have occurred in Britain in the last few years. Many others here in Holland read your site too. Thankyou for the work you do.

  11. Happy Birthday!!

    Here’s to many more…

  12. happy bday. just sort out these multiple posters and trolls so we can have a decent debate

    Happy 5th! Love the site and the articles. I started reading a few years ago, around the time I was becoming more conscious of my bisexuality. This site was a great help in giving me a leg-up into the community and politics of my fellow LGBTs. Many thanks, dudes!

  14. Love pink news. I am from NYC and have been subscribed for a little while now and look forward everyday to seeing whats going on in Europe and even here.. The best anthony

  15. HAPPY Birthday! … and MANY MANY Happy Returns.

  16. Congratulationsto everyone.

    Wonderful that you have brought injustices to the attention of a global audience. I have no doubt this work helps mobilise and energise LGBT people all over the world. Keep up the great work.


  17. Happy birthday, Pink News.

  18. Happy Birthday. Your site has meant a great deal to me since I discovered it.

    Many congratulations on the 5th Birthday. Pink News has become an important source of daily news and comment for the LGBT Community. Well done to Benjamin Cohen for launching, developing and promoting PN.

    Happy Birthday!

  21. I visit PinkNews about five times a day and there’s always something new to read. And what I read is interesting, stimulating and thought provoking. For me and my friends, it’s so part of our lives that it seems impossible to imagine being LGBT in Britain without it. You just being there, questioning politicians and showing them the seriousness and importance of LGBT issues unquestionably makes all of ourblives better.

    Thank you so much for all that you do

    Best GLBT news site ever. Pinknews has improved in many ways in the past 5 years as well – keep up the excellent work!!!!!!

    It seems only yesterday that Pinknews was reporting on that incident 5 years ago that kicked it all off – and now we are here today!!!!!

    I as a gay activist for nearly 4 years firmly believe in that we will be equal in the eyes of both the law and society someday, we will get there in time!!
