Our little site, founded in 1999, makes a big move
Outsports is proud to announce that we have been acquired by Vox Media and have joined the SB Nation network. We founded Outsports in 1999 as a labor of love.
As the most-read gay-sports publication in the world, Outsports has broken numerous national stories including the coming out of former professional athletes John Amaechi and Wade Davis, the coming out of the first Div. 1 transgender athlete, Kye Allums, the NFL's prohibition of the word "gay" on their custom jerseys, Jeremy Shockey's anti-gay comments and many others.
On our latest podcast, we talk about the last 13 years ago how the acquisition came about. While other publications have made plays for Outsports in the past, it was ultimately a "straight" sports company that got it done. And we couldn't be more proud to be in our new home.
