Marketing to the LGBTQ Community in the GTA


3 POWERFUL Publications + 1 Talk Show + Facebook & Video Campaigns+ Free Networking Opportunities + Engagement with the LGBTQ Community

As a strong and vocal supporter of LGBTQ issues, visibility, and equality, I am proud to be an independent marketing consultant for INspired Media. Our publications are produced in print, online, and shared all over social media.

We are proud of the fact that our publications are the ONLY truly DIVERSE media speaking to male, female, transgender, bi-sexual, and gender non-conforming individuals, as well as to younger, mature, diverse backgrounds, and with diverse interests. This gives our advertisers and partners access to all the different psycho-social demographics of the LGBTQ community.

Our publications have a loyal readership; we regularly produce a 100% pick up rate. We are considered your “FEEL GOOD” media; a POSITIVE and AFFIRMING voice in the LGBTQ community, intimately connected with our community in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
