GayRVA.com is Richmond, Virginia’s go-to source for news, entertainment, and information about the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) community. Created in March 2009, our mission is to move Richmond forward by reflecting the city’s diversity, bringing a voice to the table, and creating opportunities within the region to connect.
GayRVA is locally owned by Inkwell, LLC. An Advisory Board including community members and business professionals assist in the guidance of GayRVA. It is the only publication in Central Virginia dedicated to the LGBT audience.
Updated daily with help from a dedicated team of contributors, we are Richmond’s LGBT voice. If you are interested in writing or photography for GayRVA, fill out a simple form by clicking here.
GayRVA is also dedicated to giving back to the LGBT and Richmond community through supporting events and volunteer projects throughout the year including Equality Virginia’s Commonwealth Dinner, Fun For A Cause, and Virginia PrideFest.
Out.Spoken. Richmonder Of The Year
GayRVA presents this award to one individual or group making a newsworthy impact to move Richmond forward. Since our first award in June 2010, the recipient is in line with GayRVA’s core values of being inclusive and supportive not only of the LGBT community, but Richmond as a whole.
In line with our mission to create opportunities to connect, we host events with partner agencies and businesses throughout the year. Because of the high demand for our services, we work exclusively with advertisers to bring these events to fruition.
