A statement from Gay Times regarding Josh Rivers

After an investigation of the facts surrounding historical tweets by Josh Rivers, the newly appointed Editor of Gay Times magazine; we announce that his employment has been terminated with immediate effect.

We sincerely apologise for the offence that has been caused, particularly to those members of our wider community to whom such inappropriate and unacceptable commentary was the focus.

Gay Times does not tolerate such views and will continue to strive to honour and promote inclusivity.

Gay Times magazine will relaunch on 30 November, with what is quite possibly the most significant overhaul in its 33-year history.

All articles written by Josh Rivers have been removed, and the new-look magazine will feature submissions and significant contributions from the far reaches of our wonderful and diverse LGBTQ community.

The Gay Times Honours will go ahead as planned at the National Portrait Gallery this Saturday. It will celebrate the vast achievements of the LGBTQ community, recognising and reflecting upon those who have helped us in the battle for equality.
