Here Media Inc. is an LGBT-oriented media company. Headquartered in Los Angeles, the company produces and distributes niche content focused on LGBT consumers.[2][3]

History

Here Media was founded in 2009 by Paul Colichman and Stephen P. Jarchow when Here Networks LLC and Regent Entertainment Media Inc. formed a business combination with PlanetOut Inc.[4]

The company was initially established by a different name in December 2000. At that time, Online Partners agreed to acquire PlanetOut Corp., creating PlanetOut Partners Inc.[5] In 2002, privately held Here TV was launched and made available in 50 million homes.[6] On October 14, 2004, PlanetOut joined NASDAQ under the ticker symbol (LGBT).[7] In November 2005, PlanetOut acquired LPI Media, publisher of The Advocate, OUT, HIV Plus, and Alyson Books.[8] In 2008, Regent Entertainment Media Inc. (now known as Here Publishing Inc. and currently a subsidiary of Here Media Inc.) bought rights to The Advocate, OUT, HIV Plus, and Alyson Books.[9]

In 2017, Here Media sold its publishing operations to Oreva Capital.[10]
