MyPinkNews Membership FAQs
What will my membership fee or one-off contribution fund?
All of the profits we make via memberships or contributions are invested directly into our editorial operations so that we can continue to report on the important issues impacting on the LGBTQ+ community, run in-depth investigations into the matters we feel are being overlooked and ensure our content is accessible to people across the globe.
Why isn’t PinkNews introducing a full paywall like other news websites?
The PinkNews mission is to inform, inspire change and empower people to be themselves. We want as many people to have access to our content, for free, as possible so making a paywall was not an option for us. If you appreciate the work we’re doing and can afford to support us financially, we would very much appreciate your contribution. In return, you will become a valuable member of MyPinkNews, have the knowledge that you are helping to fund LGBTQ+ journalism plus you’ll get to enjoy an ad free website and app experience.
Why not just sell more advertising?
Good question! Every publisher has the same conundrum of needing to generate ad revenue to power their business, but at the same time be able to offer their valuable readers a great experience. Although we need to keep adverts on our website for financial reasons, we still want our content to be enjoyable. To show our appreciation to our MyPinkNews members we want to offer you the best possible experience, so the website and app will be ad free. Our iOS app ia available to download from the app store here: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/pinknews/id377964635
How does commenting work?
We want PinkNews to be a safe, inclusive space for everybody so for now only paying MyPinkNews members are able to post comments.
We have clear rules relating to homophobia, transphobia, dead-naming, racism and any other kind of bigotry. Any MyPinkNews member who posts such inappropriate comments will have the ability to comment suspended, but will still be able to access other MyPinkNews content and services. Of course, we will pass on relevant personal details that we will hold to the police and other law enforcement agencies in the case of hate speech being posted.
