Last month, The Gayly branched out in two exciting areas of expansion, which have been in the works for many months. The launch of a new website and hiring a full time journalist, who will assist the editor in chief with the many tasks required to produce the monthly issue and continue ongoing website coverage and social media.

Rob Howard will continue to serve as the associate editor.

“We are so excited to introduce Sara Ritsch to our Gayly readership,” said Robin Dorner, Editor in Chief.  “Sara will be a vital part of The Gayly team covering news from across the region and building our social media presence.”

Ritsch has a degree in English-Creative Writing and has worked as a freelance writer and as a co-editor of a literary journal.

“I’m excited because it’s hard to find a career in my field that both supports my true interests and allows me to be myself, judgment withheld,” said Ritsch. “I’m pursuing a dream, I’m benefiting a community.”

The Gayly distribution continues to grow with copies of our print version at nearly 20,000 each month and new distributions sites popping all the time up all over in the five state area we cover. We have expanded to Kansas City, Topeka and Dodge City, Kansas just in the last year and much more in our region.
