GSN to partner with Two Bad Tourists for #mygaypride campaign

GSN has teamed up with gay travel bloggers Two Bad Tourists for their #mygaypride campaign this summer.

The campaign – the brainchild of David Brown and Auston Matta – will see a team of 17 LGBTI and straight-allied writers and bloggers, plus 100 ambassadors, attend gay pride events around the world and share their stories via social media.

Gay Star Travel will join the team at the eight European prides – Riga, Barcelona, Berlin, Cologne, Ibiza, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Benidorm – with a further 50 prides in 20 countries attended by #mygaypride ambassadors.

The campaign officially launches on 15 June in Riga, the capital of Latvia, which is hosting this year’s EuroPride (the first former-Soviet country to do so).

TwoBadTourists cofounder David Brown commented: ‘We want people to share what pride means to them. Whether it’s sharing photos during a gay pride festival or posting a message about why you are proud to be out, we want to build a global community across social media.’

‘Pride events are important public statements for equality and LGBT visibility. We believe that coming out is one of the most important things you can do to improve LGBT acceptance and travel is a great way to accomplish that. And with marriage equality gaining momentum around the world there’s no better time than now to visit a gay pride event in a new destination.’

To take part in the #mygaypride use the official hashtag, and follow the campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can also sign up to become an ambassador at your local pride by clicking here.

Other #mygaypride media partners include Eurail, KLM, airBaltic, and ManAboutWorld.
