What our advertisers say…

“GCN has played and continues to play an integral role in enabling ABSOLUT to speak directly to the LGBT community in a highly effective way. We are delighted to have a strong brand alliance with such a quality publication.”

– Kate Scott Absolut Brand Manager,

“GCN really helped out a lot in getting me there in the early days, and coming up with ideas for me to grow my business. It wasn’t long before word got around the gay scene. Then I started to get calls from television people asking me to do little segments on their shows, and then in came the heterosexuals!”

– Stephen Thomas,

“The RTÉ Concert Orchestra cherishes its advertising relationship with GCN. It is a pleasure to advertise with an organisation that adds a personal touch to each campaign. Their genuine interest in the concerts that we advertise and their eagerness to accommodate extra requests, like Facebook competitions, makes for an all round happy partnership. Couple that with the respected, loyal readership of GCN and we have a very successful and exciting promotion channel.”

– Tracey Diamond Marketing Office,
