THE G-LIST SOCIETY is a blog dedicated to entertainment, events, news and lifestyle in the LGBT community.
We are headquartered in Chicago (USA); however, we travel to cover events and interview personalities which will captivate our readers and viewers. Since 2012, we have covered events in New York City, Washington DC, Atlanta, Chicago, Milwaukee and Dominican Republic, followed by an upcoming trip to St. Maarten, Anguilla and St. Barths in May 2013.
THE G-LIST SOCIETY is a collective of people and ideas whose passions build on creating a unique platform that speaks to the conversations, challenges and celebrations among gays and lesbians in the form of opinions added to news. Our tagline “We’re not finding our space. We’re creating our space.” refers to that unique platform.
Created by Chicago blogger Waddie G. in April 2010, THE G-LIST SOCIETY aims to put a spotlight on LGBT personalities, achievers and talents who deserve platforms and public attention that is largely missed by mainstream and popular LGBT media. THE G-LIST SOCIETY’s soft launch began in January 2012 and will host events in select cities to connect with readers and LGBT personalities in 2013-14.
THE G-LIST SOCIETY is also Waddie G’s passion in creating an informative voice for LGBT people of color through online media. With the achievements succeeded by authors, musicians, athletes, politicians, activists, entrepreneurs, etc., THE G-LIST SOCIETY sets themselves to provide a platform to showcase those LGBT talents and leaders of color for readers to acknowledge. Its BLACK GAYS ROCK! 50 Most Impressionable, Influential & Inspirational Black LGBT Personalities Of 2012 editorial generated more than 220,000 viewing impressions since it debuted in December 2012.
THE G-LIST SOCIETY will provide daily updates to keep readers informed about the talents, personalities, events and hot topics of discussion that will captivate the interest of the LGBT community and supporters.
