Hello! The Gay Activist website has been on the internet since launch on 21 October 1998, to provide background notes about key LGBTQIA campaigning issues.

Gay Activist concentrates on The Things That Really Matter.

Your Activist has been involved in gay rights for four decades, including campaigning against hate crimes, and promoting human rights. He gained experience as a citizen journalist with an internet news service and is a fully trained counsellor and mentor.

The key campaigning issues for gay activists are reflected in our Notes pages, many of which are unique on the internet.

Links are accurate at the time of posting but may no longer be there. All rights are reserved, and no liabilities are accepted.

This site receives many spam and homophobic messages, all of which are completely ignored, so please don’t waste your time. Gay Activist accepts comments but we reject spam, promotional messages, messages with videos or other links, and hate messages.

If you do not want your comment to be published please begin with the words “Not for publication”. If you wish your comment to be published anonymously, please begin with the words “Anonymous please”. Your wishes will be respected.

Each January we delete the previous years’ comments. Every month we delete news items more than one year old.

After a spate of requests to contact readers to which I have responded and subsequently received no reply, I no longer respond to enquiries other than on the web site.

In 2017 to minimise the danger of being taken in by “fake news”, we introduced additional measures to check stories before we run with them.

Number of employees: 0. Turnover: £0.00.

We do not receive any money from any advertising which may appear on the web site, and which is controlled by WordPress.

Our hits counter was re-set on 1 January, 2008.
