2019/2020 Media Kits

My name is Joey Amato and I am a seasoned journalist with over a decade of publishing and publicity experience in the LGBTQ space. My current endeavor, Pride Journeys, is a syndicated column targeting LGBTQ consumers and travelers. Each month, I publish a travel review and syndicate it to LGBTQ media across North America. Since beginning syndication in 2017, I have grown to partner with 30 other LGBTQ publications with a total combined reach of almost 400,000 people. My mission is to encourage people to travel outside of their comfort zone. Pride Journeys has visited over a dozen destinations thus far including: Milan, San Antonio, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Rochester and more. Whereas social media sponsorship may yield a one-time sale, Pride Journeys articles live on the Internet forever, and readership of a specific article could very well increase over time.

About Josh & Joey:

Josh Rimer, host and producer of an interstitial program on Canada’s OUTtv and Joey Amato, publisher of Pride Journeys, have joined forces to create a multimedia platform geared towards affluent LGBTQ travelers aged 34-60. The joint venture will reach a combined audience of almost 2 Million LGBT travelers across North America.
