South Florida is the gay and lesbian tourist Mecca, the epicenter for hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on our shores and in our businesses; because LGBT persons are financially-solvent and hard-working, with significant disposable incomes, advertisers wisely and vigorously pursue LGBT dollars.
15,000 copies are distributed at over 350 distribution points weekly throughout Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties; in addition, SFGN is the nation’s only gay newspaper distributed at all local 7-11 stores east of I-95 in South Florida.
The print edition is read, brought home and shared with others in the community; the online edition is updated daily, currently with over 1,000 daily visitors reading real-time News and Analysis of the important issues impacting our readers.
Advertising on South Florida Gay News is economical, easy, and best of all, targeted at one audience; the lesbian gay, bisexual, and trans-gender/sexual (LGBT) community in the North America, widely known to be the demographic with the most dispensable income. With content updated multiple times a day, daily newsletters, member interaction, and strategically placed ads, our visitors view our content frequently, and with multiple page views, improving your chances of having your advertisement noticed.
The first decade of the 21st Century has seen a LGBT renaissance in South Florida, including the gentrification of numerous “gayborhoods” in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Issues facing LGBT persons are numerous and complex, from partnership and employment benefits to adoption and civil liberties, marriage rights, health care and end-of-life choices. Such a varied agenda deserves careful reporting and thorough analysis. At SFGN, we have writers and columnists with the background and credentials to help you come up with real world answers for our lives. We’re SFGN: Gay News. Straight Facts.
From the openly gay sheriff’s deputy who preyed upon undocumented immigrant men, to the nation’s second-highest-ranked openly-gay municipal official (Broward County Mayor Ken Keechl, whose top-spot-title was usurped when Houston elected its own openly-gay mayor), South Florida is both a microcosm of news for the greater LGBT nation at large and an epicenter for events of wider-ranging import – ground zero for numerous LGBT issues. We look at local news and events and report it from all angles, including the good, the bad and the ugly.
When the Miami City Commission unanimously voted to extend partner benefits to its municipal employees last year, the news and its impact rippled across the culture. We bring the issues, the players, the facts and their consequences in a straightforward, concise manner. If it’s being discussed around a water cooler, it’s been discussed here. We don’t want to tell you what to think; we want to give you something to think about. No punches pulled, no holds barred.
Just as the goings-on in tropical South Florida have a wider impact on the nation and world at large, so does the news of the nation hit us where we live. New Hampshire’s gay marriage law. The elevation of openly-gay clergy to the upper hierarchies of their faiths. Less reverent men of the cloth who abuse their callings, and their parishioners. Conservative politicians caught in compromising positions (in some instances with women – and men – who are not their spouses). Anti-LGBT policies abroad. The future of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. If a story has national import – and local impact – you’ll find it in SFGN.
