Reflections upon Doing Time (Eight Hours of It)

International Gay News, Business, and Political Coverage
While the LGBTQ community may have made great strides toward progress within certain pockets of the globe, gay news coverage is still more important than ever, and Hornet is here to provide just that.

Less than half the countries around the world recognize same-sex marriage. Gay sex can still get you jailed or killed in several countries. Trans rights are only just beginning to get the recognition they deserve and still face much resistance. Bisexual erasure continues to exist outside and within the LGBTQ community. Hell, even TV shows have a problem with “killing off their gays.”

But beyond all of the terrible things taking place in the realm of gay news, Hornet also brings you the optimistic, boundary-breaking news featuring LGBTQ individuals who are seeking to make the world a better place.

Want to see Pride celebrations from all the major cities? Looking for which company just released an adorable, LGBTQ-inclusive advertisement? Want to know the next country that’s about to legalize same-sex marriage? Look no further, as Hornet has it here.

Here are just a few of the main gay news topics we discuss at Hornet :
