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 250,000 people. My mission is to encourage people to travel outside of their comfort zone. Pride Journeys has visited dozens of destinations thus far including Milan, San Antonio, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Rochester and more. Whereas social media sponsorship may yield rapid exposure, Pride Journeys articles live on the Internet forever, and readership of a specific article could very well increase over time.
