About us

The My So Called Gay Life started as a different portal for LGBTQ community and friends that covered U.S national, Canadian and European LGBTQ news in English and this is our history :

The whole ting started as link index page for gay men in 2000(2000.10.17). In August 2001 the site changed it’s name to MySoCalledGayLife.com because the site was launched under it’s own domain. A Norwegian version and after a while we were publishing LGBTQ news in Norwegian as well in addition to the English LGBTQ news publishing.

On the 1st of August 2002 5th version of MySoCalledGayLife.com was launched, and the response of the new edition was over all expectations.

Until August 2003 the web site has only had some minor changes but 7. August 2003 the web site got a big makeover. It seems that our user liked the new edition called Liquid Dreams.

02.01.2004 MySoCalledGayLife.com started just focussing  becoming a news site for the LGBTQ community and friends. The Community-service was closed.

12.09.2004 was the 7th edition launched for the Norwegian section and the biggest change was changing the CMS from PHP Nuke to Mambo. The site did also get a big makeover.

In Autumn 2005 Norwegian section was closed for good.

From the Autumn 2005 MySoCalledGayLife.com has been covering LGBTQ news only in English. No major changes to the brand until 2012.

MySoCalledGayLife.co.uk outed on the 28 of December 2012 as news site for the LGBT community and their family and friends in Ireland and the UK.

In 2015 MySoCalledGayLife.co.uk even get more focus on Australia and New Zealand and from the May 1st 2015 MySoCalledGayLife.com is merged with MySoCalledGayLife.co.uk so more focus on USA will be a natural result of the merger.

In the end of 2012, it was decided to try a new adventure, mission United Kingdom after reviewing our experience in Ireland with our site previously known as GayQube (now MySoCalledGayLife.co.uk).

It all started with the success of GayQube in Ireland, based on that experience MySoCalledGayLife.co.uk was launched in the UK and Ireland.

Then the start of merging Gayqube.com to be MySoCalledGayLife.co.uk started and the merger was completed on May 25th 2013.
