You've got the content, we've got the LGBTQ+ targeted audience & distribution
...in this adversity lies opportunity for both destinations and brands, to partner and team up with LGBTQ+ media such as #ILoveGay, allowing us to run your LGBTQ+ content for you. You'll benefit by the increased exposure your organization will be receiving from a specifically LGBTQ+ audience... and that's not just random LGBTQ+ exposure. It's targeted to LGBTQ+ individuals who have shown an interest in travel to your destination, or perhaps have shown an interest in your company's product or service category, such as travel, theatre, sports, food and so much more.
Pink Media at the Nexus of LGBTQ+ PR & Advertising
I’d like to take this time to summarize who we are, what we do and how we believe we can partner with you to best reach your target market within the LGBTQ+ community online. First, Pink Media's business strategy… it’s a cutting-edge strategy that lies at the nexus of LGBTQ+ PR & Advertising, with an #ILoveGay twist! 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
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
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!
Reaching the LGBTQ+ European Market
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.
Strategy, Performance & New Customer Acquisition
At Pink Media, we can confirm that this is indeed the case! Based on our growing client base with dedicated marketing budgets for Twitter, we've decided to emphasize the social network even more by using the full force of our ##ILoveGay network with its 200+ Twitter profiles. We can now reach over a million followers and it's growing rapidly! Join us and we can market your organization on Twitter, reaching our vast locally-engaged audiences that span the globe.

LGBTQ+ Media Companies: Content Creators or Content Distributors?
In order for media companies to survive in this decade, they need to modify their business model to realize that the "distribution" side of their business has become an ever evolving, ever growing pillar in their business landscape. Sometimes a story has over 100 different online locations where it is being spread. How content is distributed, both by the media companies' social media platforms and by online individuals and influencers sharing that content, is fast becoming the dominant part of a media company's content outreach mix.
Pride as a Tactic, Not Just a Strategy:
Targeting LGBTQ+ Audiences Year-Round
During this presentation, we will explore different ways destination organizations keep their communities and residents in front of LGBTQ+ travelers year-round. We'll walk through the basics including targeted LGBTQ+ advertising and monitoring conversations specific to your region, as well as discuss how to engage with relevant user-generated content, bringing your destination organization into these LGBTQ+ conversations. We'll also highlight some of the various niche groups within the LGBTQ+ travel community that can be reached, including the circuit party crowd, parents, sports fans and more.
Is It Time To Rethink Your PR Strategy?
It's this new marketing environment, especially as it pertains to social media, that we are focusing on. Press releases should now be split into two components: the press release itself, and the press release posted on the PR company's website in the form of an article. This article must have links, photos, and videos embedded into this article so that it captures the attention of the reader. To further guarantee that LGBTQ+ media pick up the story, there should be additional links to high-resolution photos, as well direct links to videos that can easily be embedded on other sites.
