OutNewsWire is a news distribution service dedicated to the LGBTQ community. We therefore serve news organizations and media professionals interested in receiving information, announcements and event updates of specific interest to the LGBTQ audience and readership.

Distributed to a growing network of LGBTQ and mainstream media contacts at regional and national publications and Web sites, we aspire to make this the most trusted and efficient press release distribution service serving LGBTQ audiences. It is intended to provide direct access to editors, writers and bloggers who voluntarily wish to receive targeted press releases via e-mail. Like other respected news release distributions services, all recipients have opted into this news service.

OutNewsWire is presented jointly by NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists and Witeck Communications. A portion of all proceeds generated by OutNewsWire will support the mission and programs of NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists.
