AfterEllen Has New Owners!
We have some very exciting news to share! This past Friday, AfterEllen was acquired by Lesbian Nation, which is a limited liability company privately owned by yours truly (Memoree Joelle) and Gaye Chapman, my business partner. We purchased AfterEllen because we wanted to ensure that the site is around for many years to come. There is nothing else like AfterEllen out there, as we see it as the only media site that caters content specifically for lesbian and bi women. To that end, we are proud to represent lesbians, being lesbians ourselves, who we feel are a very underrepresented minority today.
So will there be changes? Well, yes and no. I have served as Editor in Chief since 2016, and that will stay the same, so the content of the site won’t be changing much. What will be different is that, as a new business that is independently owned, we will be focusing on quality over quantity of content in our early days. Our business intention is to grow slowly, so it may be a few more months until we expand with videos and increase our celebrity interviews…but those are definitely coming! In fact, many exciting things are in store, and we have YOU to thank for reading the site, commenting, and sharing articles.
Thank you, AfterEllen readers. We truly appreciate you, and look forward to bringing you news, opinion pieces, TV recaps, interviews, movie reviews, and all your favorite lesbian content you have come to expect and deserve. Thank you for choosing us.
