Largest network of GLBT publications to cover Democratic Convention

The Gay History project has announced that major coverage of the Democratic Convention will be supplied to the largest network of GLBT publications ever assembled. Find out more online at

Coverage begins with an interview with DNC Chair Howard Dean expressing the DNC’s effort to be inclusive of the GLBT community at this year’s historic Democratic Convention, which welcomes more than 339 openly LGBT delegates, including a transgender woman serving on the party’s platform committee.

Major LGBT publications from across the U.S. will take part in a joint effort to bring coverage of the most inclusive Democratic Convention to their readers.

The coverage will include exclusive interviews with Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean, openly LGBT U.S. Representatives Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), Obama deputy campaign manager Steve Hildebrand, the DNC’s Brian Bond, the highest-ranking openly gay member of the DNC and others.

The coverage will accompany live blogging during caucus meetings and other events of interest.

Mark Segal, publisher of the Philadelphia Gay News and the founder and coordinator of the Gay History Project, said, "Local gay newspapers are the most comprehensive record of LGBT history. No single individual, organization or traditional medium has the knowledge and experience that makes up our almost 40 years of coverage."

Among the publications taking part in the coverage team are Nashville's Out & About Newspaper, Philadelphia Gay News, San Francisco’s Bay Area Reporter, Dallas Voice, Houston Voice/Out Smart, Chicago’s Windy City Times, Detroit Pride Source, L.A.’s Frontiers, Sacramento’s Outword, Seattle Gay News, Echo Magazine of Phoenix, AZ, Pennsylvania’s Central Voice, New Mexico Voice, Out In Jersey, Minneapolis’ Lavender Magazine, San Diego’s Gay and Lesbian Times, insideOut in Nashville, Kansas City’s Camp, Indiana’s Reality magazine, Salt Lake City’s Q, Cleveland’s Gay People’s Chronicle and many more.

The participating publications have a combined print circulation of over one half million readers (not including Web readership), making this the largest LGBT print media collaboration in the history of the gay press.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
