Sydney Star Observer will publish its 1000th issue next Wednesday.
To mark the occasion the issue won’t hit the streets until late Wednesday evening, following a special launch event at Taylor Square from 6pm.
“One thousand issues is a significant milestone in any publication’s history,” SSO Media publisher Scott Abrahams said.
“But to be celebrating it at a time when so many other gay publications around the globe are closing down makes this an especially proud moment.
“Add to that the fact we are publishing our 1000th issue in the same year we are celebrating our 30th anniversary, and you have what is turning out to be a very special, very exciting year for Australia’s oldest and widest circulating gay and lesbian newspaper.”
The 1000th issue will be launched by a very special guest and will include messages from some of the country’s most significant gay and lesbian community members, organisations and community supporters.
“We’d like to encourage everyone to come along to the launch at Taylor Square on their way home from work next Wednesday,” SSO Media chairman Daniel Bone said.
“SSO always has and always will pride itself on its community commitment and focus. We can’t think of a better group of people to share this with than the readers who continue to support us week after week.”
