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.
