Who We Are
EDGE is the largest network of local Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) news and entertainment publications in the world, serving 8+ million dedicated readers from a variety of metropolitan areas around the United States and beyond on the web, mobile web and native apps.
EDGE is a group of journalists dedicated to the presentation of local and national news and information targeted to the LGBT community in a fair, entertaining, non-conglomerate format.
EDGE was born in April, 2004 to fill the LGBT digital news gap in Boston Massachusetts. We were first to market both on the web and on mobile apps, and our success in Boston soon led to national launches in 33 other markets.
That the LGBT community is a diverse, dynamic group of individuals that are appropriately interested in a diverse, dynamic body of coverage; EDGE therefore reports on a wide spectrum of issues related both directly and indirectly to that community.
That a journalistic organization's first responsibility is to the truth; as such, EDGE reports objectively on issues facing the LGBT community without an eye to advocacy. However, we often take sides on such issues when we sense the opportunity for progress in what we believe is the best direction for our community and the world. We do not do so to generate discord, but rather to elevate and focus discourse.
That our readers are our most important assets; as a result we strive to engage them in our editorial pursuits, listen to their comments and ideas, respond personally to questions or concerns, and build a pleasing, functional, safe and respectful atmosphere for them to access content, contribute their opinions and communicate with each other.
What You Can do to Help
The EDGE Network is made possible by the gracious sponsorship of our partners and advertisers. They have made a commitment to financially support the LGBT community via EDGE's mission and philosophy, and we believe they deserve to be recognized and rewarded in turn.
Please support our partners and advertisers by patronizing their businesses. This may be achieved by clicking on any of the advertisements you see on the EDGE network and thoughtfully perusing one of their websites.
