Queerty is an online magazine and newspaper covering gay-oriented lifestyle and news, founded in 2005 by David Hauslaib. As of June 2015, the site had more than five million monthly unique visitors.
Queerty was founded by David Hauslaib in 2005 with Bradford Shellhammer serving as founding editor. The site briefly shut down operations in 2011 before being sold to Q.Digital, which currently owns and operates it.
Newsweek called Queerty "a leading site for gay issues" in 2010.
The site bestows the Queerty Awards or "Queerties", in which their readers vote for the "best of LGBTQ Media and Culture". A record 300,000 votes were gathered in 2017.
Queerty was recently criticized as being a contributor to fake online outrage. The cited article had a title suggesting Trump fans were outraged to see a picture of a female soccer player kissing another female, but the article provided no facts supporting the presumption of title.
