This news organization is committed to transparency about our ownership structure and our sources of funding. We mention possible conflicts of interest in the same page we mention relevant work.
We were founded independently in 2011 by the publicist Vinícius Yamada, who is currently the editor-in-chief of GAY BLOG BR. We cater to a mostly LGBT+ audience. We have a news team of three people, including seven columnists.
Proposal of Declaration of Editorial Independence
SCRUFF (Perry Street Software), concession owner of GAY BLOG BR, grants the site’s journalists and editors freedom to set agendas, editorial lines and articles. SCRUFF does not impose restrictions regarding the content, neither does it encourage the staff to set up practices to undermine or to defame possible competitors.
We do not accept gifts, including paid trips, in order to avoid any conflict of interest or appearance. When we rely on an organization to obtain a product or to get access to an event, we are transparent about the relationship and we keep it in our relevant work.
