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 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.
