*We are raising money through Crowdfunder to help us get Lesbian and Gay News off the ground. We are seeking to raise £45,000 to help us run the site for the first year.

The money you give us will be used to pay for a news reporter, for features and articles by freelance journalists, writers and columnists, stock photography, programming, technical and server costs plus website production and editing.

Over half of any money raised on the initial Crowdfunder will be used to pay for a news reporter and freelance journalists and writers contributing to the site. We want to pay a fair rate to the skilled and well-informed journalists and writers who we hope will regularly contribute to Lesbian and Gay News.*
