Statement from the GAY TIMES editorial team in regards to its recent coverage of the Israel – Hamas conflict:

GAY TIMES condemns all forms of prejudice, racism, antisemitism and islamophobia and champions inclusivity.

We regret that our editorial standards fell short on this occasion of the inclusivity and impartiality in regards to this coverage that we strive for as a content team, and sincerely apologise for the hurt it has caused.

We are clear in our condemnation of Hamas as a terrorist organisation. We categorically condemn the attack on October 7.

We mourn the loss of innocent civilian lives lost in the territories affected by the ongoing conflict – and we hope for a peaceful resolution.

Action will be taken internally at GAY TIMES to continue to interrogate our own journalistic standards and strive for greater inclusivity in our output.
