To cover a national election with huge stakes, editors at LGBTQ Nation and Queerty deployed correspondents in Paris, London, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., New York, San Diego, and Portland – urban areas that cover five times zones – to produce not just geographic diversity but round-the-clock coverage of breaking news. 

The correspondents produced more than 50 election-night articles explaining how the results affected the future of equality in America.

With the mainstream media focused on the national horse race, our team tracked dozens of local and state LGBTQ candidates, from Congress to City Hall, seeking reelection or office for the first time.

Focusing on the diversity of the community’s future leaders and thinkers in the run-up to election night, the site scored multiple exclusives

LGBTQ Nation has established itself as the United States’ largest LGBTQ news site, racking up a monthly audience of millions. The news outlet scored an especially impressive readership during the campaign and through Election Day, with hundreds of thousands of daily visitors and social media shares.

This election coverage builds on a growth year for LGBTQ Nation that featured expanded Pride coverage (May-June), the launch of the Heroes program (September), LGBTQ PRIME channel (May-Sept), and LGBTQ History Month coverage (October). 

LGBTQ Nation is edited by Bil Browning and Alex Bollinger. Correspondents include Juwan Holmes, John Gallagher, Jhoni Jackson, Molly Sprayregen, and Daniel Villareal.
