Launch of Canada’s First & Only LGBTQ Wedding Website
Toronto, ON (TNWS) – Canada Gay Weddings™ is proud to announce the official launch of Canada’s first and only conjugal website dedicated to the country’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) community – www.CanadaGayWeddings.ca.
Canada Gay Weddings officials vow the new website will provide the Canadian LGBTQ community with the opportunity for equal inclusion into the wedding industry.
“We are always participating at bridal shows from Toronto to the Golden Horseshoe region, and while attending these shows same-sex couples would often approach me with hesitation,” says Joe Plati, Founder and Publisher of Canada Gay Weddings. “I realized how lop-sided the wedding industry really was and that these couples deserve the same excitement and fairness in planning their weddings as anyone else.”
Plati, who is the Publisher of The Bridal Guide Publication, explains that Canada Gay Weddings was born to bridge that gap and bring equality to the wedding industry.
He says CanadaGayWeddings.ca is a proud and dedicated supporter of the LGBTQ wedding industry.
“Our focus is to inform, educate, and inspire couples, individuals, and businesses to get involved with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer wedding community,” Plati promises. “We look forward to helping all Canadians plan the wedding of their dreams.”
He insists the Website will “provide the best community in Canada focused on real LGBTQ wedding stories, along with LGBTQ friendly travel destinations, and categories of equality-friendly vendors all across the country that will assist the newly engaged with stress-free wedding planning.”
“Marriage is about love, and love is free from prejudice and discrimination,” Plati says. “All couples should be able to experience the joy of planning the wedding of their dreams and be treated with equal fairness regardless of who they love.”
He says a pre-launch has shown a growing social media fan-base which speaks well to the acceptance of CanadaGayWeddings.ca in the LGBTQ community.
The team has brought in award-winning writer Catherine Thorpe to work as Editor-in-Chief for Canada Gay Weddings.
“I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be offered this position,” Thorpe says. “Accepting it was an easy choice, both as an active ally for the LGBTQ community as well as the mother of a young trans girl.”
Thorpe is a well-known blogger and community advocate with many years of experience in the publishing industry.
“I’m looking forward to leading the editorial team for the very first digital edition of the CGW magazine set to be published in the Spring of 2016,” she says.
