Star Observer

Setting Australia’s LGBTI agenda since 1979

Their first story was written in 1979. As a community run and owned news organisation, they have built an international reputation for fearless reporting, independent of any politician or corporation.

From the early days of Mardi Gras, through the AIDS crisis, to the battle for marriage equality, the Star Observer has been there providing in-depth and independent journalism about the issues facing the LGBTI community.

Over the years, they have grown to become a major Australian national news website and colour monthly magazine distributed across Adelaide, Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, as well as selected regional Australian locations.

Most of their readers now read their articles on their phones and tablets. Even so, many people still love thumbing through the longer articles in our beautifully-produced monthly magazines.

There are now more than 250,000 loyal readers like you, who read their articles each month online and in print. Many of you join them on Facebook to debate the issues.

Through it all, they have remained a not-for-profit business owned by the community. Proceeds from the business are invested into the LGBTI community.
