Our History

The My So-Called Gay Life started as a different portal for LGBTQ community and friends back in 2000 and here is our history.

All started as link index page for gay men in 2000 (2000.10.17). In August 2001 the site changed its name to MySoCalledGayLife.com since the site was launched under its own domain.

A Norwegian version was launched, we were then publishing LGBTQ news in Norwegian in addition to the English LGBTQ news.

1st of August, 2002 5th version of MySoCalledGayLife.com was launched. The response of the new layout was overall our expectations.

Until August 2003 the website has only had some minor changes, but the 7. August 2003 it got a big makeover. It seems that our user liked the new layout that was named Liquid Dreams.

02.01.2004 MySoCalledGayLife.com started to just focus on becoming a news website for the LGBTQ community, friends and family. The Community-service was closed.

12.09.2004 was the 7th edition launched for the Norwegian part of the website. The biggest change was changing the CMS from PHP Nuke to Mambo. The website also got a big change of layout.

In Autumn 2005 Norwegian section was closed for good.

From the Autumn of 2005 MySoCalledGayLife.com has been covering only LGBTQ news 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.

End of 2012, it was decided to try a new adventure. New adventure named mission United Kingdom. This came about after reviewing our experience with our website GayQube.com (today MySoCalledGayLife.co.uk) in Ireland.

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

In 2015 MySoCalledGayLife.co.uk even got 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.

MySoCalledGayLife.co.uk is 100% owned by the MySoCalledGayLife.com that has been covering LGBT news since 2000.
