International Gay News, Business & Political Coverage

While the LGBTQ community has made great strides in certain pockets of the world, gay news coverage is still more important than ever, and Hornet is here to provide just that.

Less than half of countries around the world recognize same-sex marriage. Gay sex can still get you jailed or killed in many parts of the world. Trans rights are only just beginning to get the recognition they deserve and still face much resistance. Bisexual erasure exists outside and within our own community. Even TV shows have a problem with killing off gay characters.

But beyond all the terrible things taking place in the realm of gay news, Hornet also brings you optimistic, boundary-breaking news featuring LGBTQ people seeking to make the world a better place.
Want to take a peek at the Pride celebrations of all the world's major cities? Looking for recently released, LGBTQ-inclusive ads? Want to know which country is about to legalize same-sex marriage? Look no further.
