Comcast Flexes Its Integrated Marketing Muscles for San Franscisco Pride
HOME | Blog | Comcast Flexes Its Integrated Marketing Muscles for San Franscisco Pride
After a successful San Francisco Pride in 2017, Comcast CA decided to come back to San Francisco Pride for 2018 with the ambitious plan of leveraging the different touch points that Comcast / Xfinity / NBC Universal had to offer.
2018 San Francisco Pride: Mamma Mia! Yes We Went Again!
As we did last year, we were really happy to be working with them as part of their diversity efforts, and before you knew it, we were strategizing on a series of podcasts, a store event and a perfectly fitting float for the event.
We just happened to know the best person to help us tackle this exciting project: Clexacon-famous Dana Piccoli.
We decided on doing four podcasts leading up to the live event at the Xfinity Store. Our first one dealing with Pride's Past.
Pridecast Episode 1.
Get the #PrideCast podcast on @iTunes! Check out the 1st episode where you learn from #Pride's past! Also, join @DanaPiccoli during @SFPride for the live episode on 6/21 at the @ComcastCA location on Geary. #XfinityLGBTQ #SFPride #sponsored @ILoveGaySF https://t.co/oybDXxbvno pic.twitter.com/OdOOAnX1Zu— LGBTQ New Media (@NewMediaLGBT) June 13, 2018

We ended up having such a wonderful time working with the Comcast California team and both Dana and Tay in making SF Pride such an incredibly inspiring weekend! Check out this LIVE in-store recording of Dana's #Pridecast episode in the video below, where she interviews Tay Barrett and our friend at Comcast Adriana Arvizo.
