Queerty's Top 15

15 Times You Made Queerty Go Viral

Screen Shot 2015-09-25 at 1.34.07 PMQueerty is growing up. Or rather, our three-year growth spurt has caught up with us, and now that we’ve found a snazzy new pair of shoes that fit just right, we’re ready to embark on a new adventure.

But we’ll dispense with the metaphors.

Q.Digital announced today that it will consolidate five outstanding media propertiesQueerty, LGBTQNation, GayCities, Dragaholic and Bilerico Project — to create the largest global LGBTQ online media publisher.

Last month, these sites’ combined traffic surpassed Here Media as well as that of Gay Ad Network. So, it’s like kind of a big deal. In the process, we’ve caused a stir, called out our heroes and had thoughtful conversations about important issues. 

With more than five million uniques each month, Queerty is the most popular LGBTQ editorial site in the world.

So, thanks! As cliché as it sounds, we couldn’t have done it without you.

In return, we vow to bring you more of the stories you love, even if we ruffle more than a few feathers in the process.

We’ve caused a stir with exclusive and outrageous stories that reach millions of readers:
