Queensland Pride
Queensland Pride is a monthly gay and lesbian magazine based in Brisbane, Australia. One of several titles published by the Evolution Publishing group, Queensland Pride is distributed throughout Brisbane and major regional centres in Queensland. The publication covers local, national and international news of interest to the gay and lesbian community, and has a strong focus on the arts and entertainment. The editorial team consists of Peter Hackney (editor) and a team of regular freelance contributors including Katrina Fox (features writer), Alistair Sutton (travel) and drag performer Wanda d'Parke (columnist). Queensland Pride was first published as a monthly in January 1991, one month after the state of Queensland decriminalised male homosexuality. It was originally published as a newspaper, in a black-and-white newsprint format. It was the state's first gay and lesbian publication. Its founding editor was Raymond 'Wally' Cowin, who remained in the editorial role until February 2001. He was succeeded as editor by the then news editor, Iain Clacher, who remained editor of the title until January 2009, when he died of a heart attack. Clacher was succeeded as editor by the current editor, Peter Hackney. In March 2001, Queensland Pride began publishing fortnightly. It reverted to a monthly publication schedule in March 2004, shortly after publication of the title was taken over by a new company, Special Publications Australia. Special Publications Australia sold the title to Evolution Publishing in June 2007. From June 2007, the publication changed from a newsprint format to a high-quality, full-colour full-gloss format. Queensland Pride is an official media sponsor of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
