Gay television company Here Networks has purchased Hyperion Interactive Media Corp., creator of such Web sites as GayMonkey.com and the print magazine GayWebMonkey. The acquisition was announced Wednesday and includes all of the more than 20 portals and Web sites owned by HIM, which will now be called Here Interactive Media. "The HIM Corp. properties will reinforce Here as a vital entertainment destination to millions of gay and lesbian consumers," Paul Colichman, Here Networks founder and CEO, said in a statement. "HIM Corp. is the online bridge by which Here will connect to the infinite places and pathways where the LGBT community finds one another." Those properties, which include the popular GayWired.com and LesbiaNation.com, receive a combined 2 million unique visitors a month. HIM Corp. founder Matt Skallerud will continue in his capacity overseeing the sites, and his current staff will remain in place. The companies are the latest LGBT businesses to unite in the hopes of expanding their mutual marketing reach and audiences. Here is currently available in more than 50 million households around the country. (The Advocate)
