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.
