Why Us? Experience!
From the Pink Media team, we've been instrumental with a variety of LGBTQ+ associations over the past 25 years, including board positions with IGLTA, Travel Gay Canada, LAGLCC, LGBT MPA and more. We've also been at the forefront of LGBTQ+ New Media since 1995 with the launch of GayWired.com, which was sold to Here Media in 2006. When we started, there was no Google or Yahoo, and banner ads did not exist yet. Our business life has coincided with the emergence of digital media, and we grew up professionally while banner advertising, e-mail campaigns, mobile apps, video and social media evolved into what they are today.
We believe that with the democratization of the tools to not only publish content, but to also communicate and share this content, the timing couldn't be better to create this group, with the hopes it develops into a full-blown association worthy of the LGBTQ+ Advertising, Marketing & New Media community we have with us today.
