Our content is created by professional travel writers and personal travel experiences submitted by readers. Gaycation Magazine works with top brands, hotels and destinations to provide inspiration and advice that expertly serves the discerning traveler. The magazine shows it is serious about becoming a global LGBTQ travel and news powerhouse with the acquisition this week of Sydney, Australia-based Rainbow Tourism. This marks the company’s second acquisition in 2015, having taken over the Indianapolis-based LGBT newspaper The Word just a week ago. The acquisitions will create a combined social media footprint of 75,000 Facebook Likes, 20,000 Twitter followers and 10,000 Pinterest and Google+ followers, with projected page views on all three websites exceeding 500,000 monthly visitors under the Gaycation brand.
Gaycation Magazine announced February 15, 2014 that it has agreed to acquire “The Word” www.thegayword.com Newspaper and its sister publication “Up Downtown” from Ted Fleischaker and Word Publications. After almost a quarter-century in the founder’s “family” both popular papers, are changing hands, but they will still remain in the “family.” The acquisition will extend Gaycation Magazine’s domestic media platform, particularly in the Midwest, helping to fuel its aggressive growth strategy. The deal will complement both publications by expanding key content vertically while also accelerating the digital evolution of both companies. “The Word and Up Downtown are a perfect fit for our growing portfolio of news and travel media assets and the name and rich heritage of both titles will be preserved independently vastly expanding our overall print and digital platforms and extending our reach across the growing LGBT market.” says DJ Doran, Publisher of Gaycation Magazine.
Gaycation Magazine publishes 10 issues a year and is focused on the sophisticated LGBT segment of travel.
