OutUK was formed in 1999 and launched in July 2000 to provide the UK gay community with an alternative to
existing gay information and entertainment websites, many of which are anglicised versions
of sites from other countries. With a passion to encourage quality writing, our aim is to provide stimulating
coverage of the issues that affect gay men in the UK and Europe, together with entertainment and advice from a
uniquely gay perspective.
OutUK was the first of a series of websites origionally produced by Out Europe Ltd a consultancy
company who specialised in the management of new media properties. The company was purchased in
August 2004 by European new media company Out Europe BV based in the Netherlands. The website is
now fully owned and operated from within The Netherlands, ahead of further expansion into Europe.
Out Europe also provides consultancy and project management services for companies and individuals
wishing to develop their presence on the internet or create new web properties. We have developed
great expertise in producing websites for arts organisations and venues, as well as
individual sites for performers and musicians. Details of our client portfolio are
available on request. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We believe that the market for websites aimed at the gay community in the UK and Europe
is due for substantial growth over the next ten years. In order to take advantage of that
opportunity we are happy to consider developing relationships with third parties
who wish to expand their investments in the sector. Please contact email@example.com.

OutUK has an ongoing marketing campaign in the both the gay and internet press. In 2001 we
were one of the main event sponsors of London 2001 - The World Gay and Lesbian Football
Championships, held in Chiswick, West London.
For the two years that followed we were main sponsors
of the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival organised by the British Film Institute and held at
the National Film Theatre on London's South Bank. For both festivals and their UK wide tours OutUK
produced the official LLGFF website on behalf of the BFI.
In 2004 OutUK
was the main sponsor of The Bingham Cup an international rugby tournament in honour of Mark
Bingham who tried unsuccesfully to defeat terrorists on board one of highjacked
planes that crashed on September 11th 2001.
We continue to feature news and information of interest to gay men and last year celebrated our 20th anniversary online.
