Last issue we asked our readers:
Should QNews ‘CONTINUE TO LIST’ the Wickham as a gay venue on our Q Map / business directory / venue listings / magazine / events / calendar and continue to recommend The Wickham to strangers, newly out people and travellers as a gay welcoming venue?
The poll was created due to the feedback we received from many readers who raised issues with us about The Wickham’s status as a gay friendly venue.
One such issue is the dramatic decline of over $20,000 in LGBTI charity donations from The Wickham / Coles’ 2015 Big Gay Day event. CLICK HERE for full story
We were swamped with responses to the story via social media, emails, private messages and phone calls.
A total of 1343 readers voted in the poll, with 89% voting in favour of QNews delisting the Wickham from our channels, and 11% voting to continue listing the venue.
People suggested there are other gay venues around Queensland that should be included and promoted by QNews. Please offer suggestions via firstname.lastname@example.org.
