LBGTQ+ media exec DJ Doran talks niche publishing & his run for mayor of Chicago


Aequalitas is Latin for “equality.” But it would be hard to find an industry executive equal to Aqualitas Media Group founder and executive director DJ Doran, who spent 23 years as a U.S. Air Force Reserve Pilot before purchasing a hotel and entering the news publishing industry.  Today, Doran owns eight online publications targeted to the LGBTQ+ reader in several U.S. major markets, including his hometown of Chicago.  Doran, who is openly gay, is now planning a run for Chicago mayor in the upcoming 2023 election as a Democrat.

In this 151st episode of “E&P Reports,” host Mike Blinder goes one-on-one with LGBTQ+ media publisher DJ Doran on how he kept his major market media enterprises thriving during a global pandemic, his news publishing plans for the future and his recent announcement to run as an openly gay candidate for Mayor of Chicago.
