Weekly goes pink after scooping Gay Surrey prize

The Surrey Comet turned its masthead and front-page promo pink to celebrate winning an award for its coverage of the gay community.

The Newsquest-owned weekly picked up the Heart of Equality award at an event hosted by the Gay Surrey charity on 17 May, the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO).

Gay Surrey Gino Meriano said: ‘The Surrey Comet continues to impress with its proactive journalism.

‘The reporters are always there to listen to both sides of the coin and while they always deliver news impartially, their support of the charity is unwavering and I am eternally grateful to them for that.”

Comet assistant editor Julia Kennard added: ‘The Surrey Comet prides itself on being at the heart of the community.

‘Our reporters are passionate about covering a diverse range of issues and we strive to ensure we are always fair and impartial.

‘We are proud to have won a Gay Surrey Heart of Equality award and in celebration we have turned our current issue pink.

‘We look forward to working with the gay community, and the wealth of other diverse groups living in Surrey, to represent and voice the key issues affecting them in the future.”
