About Us

Gay Nation is the online magazine of your Gay Community. Covering Local and International News, Entertainment, Fashion, Travel, Health and Fitness. Your Gay Nation.

The all new, fresh, innovative gay community website was established in February 2015 to fill a void in the New Zealand gay media.

Today gaynation.co has not only etched a place in the NZ media landscape but is now becoming the online publication of choice for gay men in Australia and across many countries in Asia, Europe and the United States of America.

Gaynation.co is now the number one supported gay media platform across Oceania with over 24,000 fans on Facebook (20,000 fans ahead in NZ and almost level with the number 1 in Australia and five times as much engagement than our nearest competitors), 6,800 followers on Instagram (4,000 followers more than our nearest competitor) and 4,800 twitter followers.

Gaynation.co is powered by Eikon Media Limited
