X (formerly Twitter) Bans Pink Media & ##ILoveGay Network, suppressing over 1 Million LGBTQ Voices. Who’s Next?

Learn More From a business angle, we were hesitant to report this and put out a statement, in hopes that we would be able to recover our 250+ profiles on X from what they are calling a ‘permanent suspension.’ But since the morning of July 4th, 2024, when our entire network of profiles was taken down, we’ve received numerous emails, DMs and texts from LGBTQ+ folks from around the world asking us what has happened.


Articles We've Been A Part of for Pride Month June 2024

Learn More Check out some of the articles we were a part of for Pride Month 2024. The larger story that's been taking hold this Pride Month is how larger companies and brands have taken a few steps back with their LGBTQ+ outreach this year, and it's been the power of LGBTQ+ small business that has really risen to the occasion when it comes to helping support LGBTQ+ media, marketing firms and LGBTQ+ non-profits.


Pink Media Celebrates LGBTQ+ Small Business Successes Amid Pride 2024 Challenges

Learn More While much of corporate America has decided to sit this Pride season out, LGBTQ+ small business has risen to the challenge by supporting LGBTQ+ media, marketing and non-profit firms in 2024. The results thus far have been amazing!

Here we are in the final days of Pride Month, June 2024, and we want to acknowledge and show our appreciation and gratitude to the many LGBTQ+ small businesses that have stepped up to offset some of the advertising revenue losses experienced by LGBTQ media like Pink Media this year. Many large brands chose to sideline themselves for Pride 2024, still recovering from the backlash faced by Bud Light, Target, and even Disney in 2023. As a result, much of corporate America has decided to sit this Pride season out.

Leland Vittert - On Balance: Target to Scale Back LGBTQ+ Merchandise

Learn More Check us out... Leland and I chatting about Bud Light, Target & Disney and the effects of the 'double boycott'. When businesses pull back from their support of the LGBTQ+ community, the pullbacks feel like a reaction not well thought through, but for us, this is our lives, it's personal. We don't have the luxury of just pulling back, jumping back into the closet and waiting for a better day.

Learn More I don't know about you, but for us, when it comes to advertising, Facebook and Instagram targeting has become more and more of a challenge lately.

Our job is to keep your message alive and in front of your targeted LGBTQ+ audience 24/7, 365 days per year.


Pink Media - Meta's Launch of Threads

Learn More Let's talk about Threads. But first, some context... we all know what Stories are, but remember back when they were just Snaps? Then the Snaps technology was "borrowed" by all of the major social media platforms and became Stories. The same thing happened with Reels... once upon a time they were just TikToks. Now they are Shorts and Reels.


Pink Media at the Intersection of LGBTQ+ PR & Advertising

Learn More As we wrap up Pride Month 2023, we believe we can safely say that our business model we've been refining over the past few years has finally come together as a true, new LGBTQ+ media strategy that we can now take to market for the next several years.


#ILoveGay Network Now at One Million Followers and Growing Fast!

Learn More With our #ILoveGay network now reaching over 1,000,000+ followers and growing fast, our strength in reaching a targeted LGBTQ+ audience anywhere in the world just reached a new height.


Reaching the LGBTQ+ European Market

Learn More With our #ILoveGay network now reaching over 1,000,000+ followers and growing, our strength in the European market allows us to offer our clients unprecedented reach into targeting LGBTQ+ consumers across the European continent. The power of social media advertising is in our opportunity to reach 2nd degree contacts, a version of "friends of friends". Meaning that if a single social media profile has 5,000 followers, we can target and reach their followers as well. If they average 1,000 followers each, that is a potential audience of 5,000,000. Layering on additional targeting, such as reaching an LGBTQ+ audience interested in sports, travel, theatre, movies and more allows for a strong audience size our clients can get their message in front of at a fraction of the cost of traditional targeted advertising to reach this niche LGBTQ+ community online.

Learn More At Pink Media, we can confirm that this is indeed the case! Based on our growing client base with dedicated marketing budgets on social media, we've decided to emphasize our #ILoveGay social media network even more by using the full force of its 200+ social media profiles.
