As you’ve probably noticed GaySocialites.com has been down recently. The website needed a little time offline to undergo a technological and leadership overhaul. I guess you could say these upgrades were a birthday gift to GaySocialites.com who turned six years old over the weekend.
We have moved our site over to a new server that is more equipped to hold all of the data that we have accrued over the past six years.
The amount of news, entertainment, politics, nightlife, editorials, blogs and breaking stories delivered at GaySocialites.com rival any mainstream news outlet. I couldn’t be prouder of the team we’ve assembled and all those who have contributed throughout the years.
We have come so far since I founded GaySocialites.com on October 24, 2006! At that point, I was the only contributor. Today, we have a staff of 21!
In another sign of how far we have come, it is with mixed emotions that I write this (my last) note to you in the role of Editor-in-Chief at GaySocialites.com. From here I will take on a new role as the President and Editorial Director of our parent company, my name sake, Charles Winters Information Management.
More importantly, for the first time in six years, I will be passing the torch to a new Editor-in-Chief at GaySocialites.com. Officially, as of Wednesday, it is with great pride that I had off these duties to Thomas Bistritz.
Other than myself, Thomas will be the first person to ever hold this role. Many of you may know him best as his nightlife persona, Demanda Dahling. Beyond the role of prolific party host, Bistritz is a published author and previously served as our Editorial Director here at GaySocialites.com.
Thomas brings a whole new wave of excitement to our established and highly reputable brand. His enthusiasm is unparalleled, and his ideas are guaranteed to lift GaySocialites.com to the next level. He brings to the table the promise of fresh ideas, expanded involvement by contributors you never expected to see at GaySocialites.com and an element of surprise that will keep both the readers and the staff on their toes. I am confident that I leave our flagship site in great hands!
You’ll continue to see my reports here at GaySocialites.com, and in November I’ll host the debut internet radio show called “Straight Talk with Charles Winters” as queerplanet.net begins to broadcast exclusively online.
I encourage your feedback and involvement in each of our online ventures. You can always contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for helping us get our start and for continuing to grow with us!
President & Editorial Director
