Andy Towle has been one of the legendary pioneers in the industry and this is Towleroad.com tenth year of operating. Andy is the one that help inspire me into being a blogger and has mentored me over the years.
Here is part of the announcement:
We’re pleased to announce an exclusive new partnership today that makes Towleroad not just the best LGBT source for domestic news but also the most comprehensive source for international news in LGBT media.
Regular readers of the site know we’ve been blogging about international LGBT issues for years, covering news that's urgent and disturbing, disturbing and amusing , or just plain diverting since long before the Sochi Olympics.
But, we’re upping our international game by partnering with GlobalPost to broaden and deepen our coverage. Since launching in 2009, GlobalPost, one of the most comprehensive sources of international news, has won some of the most prestigious journalism awards, including the Peabody, the Polk, two Edward R. Murrow Awards, and the Overseas Press Club Award.
We're thrilled to join other GlobalPost partners including NBC News and local papers across the country to bring this coverage to Towleroad readers. Their roster of talented reporters, writers, editors and photographers are posted and posting from around the world. With 29 full-time editorial staff and correspondents plus a network of 75 freelance journalists in every region,
GlobalPost reports on strategic business, political and social trends and topics. In addition to regular coverage of LGBT issues we've found many other areas of common interest with the GlobalPost editorial team and we'll be weaving in a mix of their posts from a new set of voices, just as we have over the past year with our incredible roster of accomplished and up and coming blogging talent.
