ABOUT GAY VEGAS

Gay Vegas was founded in 1997 during the dot-com boom, which included the initial registration of the GayVegas.com domain.
18 years later, Gay Vegas is the voice of the LGBT community in Las Vegas.

Transparent & Verifiable Data

Gay Vegas was the first and is the only LGBT publication in Las Vegas that has ever been audited and verified by an accredited third-party reporting & auditing agency. We have partnered with some of the biggest names in the business including Rivendell Media, Community Marketing Inc. and the Circulation Verification Council.

LGBT-Owned & Operated

For many years LGBT-focused businesses in Las Vegas refrained from advertising in local LGBT publications because they were unable to receive a return on investment primarily because of a misrepresention in circulation. For years, the focus of former LGBT publications was on catering to major companies with larger budgets. In order to determine if an LGBT publication is successful in targeting their respective LGBT market, you must first verify the number of its LGBT-focused advertisers who depend primarily or exclusively on LGBT customers. Gay Vegas provides maximum returns with honest and verifiable data, and has more LGBT primary advertisers than any other publication has ever had in the history of Las Vegas.
