Navigaytour Partners With EDGE Media Network

For Immediate Release Apr 9, 2012

The Navigaytour, a premier publisher of gay and lesbian destination guides, has entered into a partnership agreement with EDGE Media Network. The agreement makes the Navigaytour an official sales representative for Edge Media Network, which is the leading network of local gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender news and entertainment.

"This is an important partnership," said David Jefferys, publisher of the Navigaytour. "EDGE adds powerful regional online, email and mobile to the suite of products that we offer to clients."

The Navigaytour publishes regional guides for gay and lesbian travel, home and lifestyle. Produced in partnership with the local tourism and gay-business organizations, they include relevant information on places to see and be seen, accommodations, entertainment, home and garden, design, relocation, weddings and, more recently, premier events.

For example, the Navigaytour will serve as the local orientation piece during the upcoming International AIDS 2012 talking place in Washington DC, July 20 to 28. The Navigaytour is creating a special AIDS 2012 section and will double its print distribution, as well as email virtual copies to over 250,000 gay and lesbian travelers.

"We are very excited to be partnering with Navigaytour," said Todd Paschen, VP, Sales of EDGE. "This is an integral step in helping us grow our local markets."
