g3 magazine began in March 2001. The magazine launched as a 48 page publication, and was initially being produced at the founder's, Sarah Garrett's, home. The lesbian world has changed vastly since that time, due to law changes, many women feeling they can be more visible and public attitudes changing with more positive representation in the mainstream media. As a result this has meant g3 has been able to flourish, the team of staff now put together the substantial monthly magazine in their central London offices, which hopefully serves as verification of how the lesbian community has come. There is no other publication like it, and best of all it has remained free for its loyal readers.
"Most of all we'd like to thank everyone for their support over the years, many people have pitched in and afterall the magazine is trully one that belongs to the whole community" - Sarah Garrett.
...AND THE BORING CORPORATE STUFF
The publication now has a print run of 40,000 [estimated readership x 3.5 = 140,000]. g3 was launched in 2001 with a circulation of 5,000. Within 5 years this had increased by 600%, proving that there is a high demand for the product from both a readership and a commercial point of view.
