There are agencies that specialize in all kinds of areas. Considering LGBT issues, and the $700 billion or more in disposable income from this group, it’s not surprising firms specialize in LGBT issues. Some of the firms listed below deal almost exclusively in PR related to LGBT concerns and marketing, while some have divisions to do so. Here’s our take on some of the top firms in this field.
Out Now Consulting.
Many of the firm’s clients are in banking, tourism, and insurance. They match their clients’ messages with expectations of the target audience positioning communication for optimal results. Sharing the client’s offerings that matter most to members of the gay and lesbian communities is the goal. Recent and current clients include Aviva, Nationwide, Barclays Bank, Stockholm Visitors Board, Lloyds Banking Group, and Visit Britain.

They specialize in getting information into print publications, top websites & blogs, television, radio, and providing tour press & event listings.
