Queensland Pride is a monthly gay and lesbian newspaper 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 Iain Clacher (editor) and a team of regular freelance contributors including Evelyn Hartogh (arts editor), Vicki Ogilvie (women), Alistair Sutton (travel) and drag performer Lidia Box (columnist).
Queensland Pride was first published as a monthly in January 1991, one month after the state of Queensland decriminalized male homosexuality. It was teh state's first gay newspaper. It's founding editor, and the major shareholder of Queensland Pride Pty Ltd, was Raymond 'Wally' Cowin, who remained in the editorial role until February 2001. He was succeeded as editor by the news editor, Iain Clacher.
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 May 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.
