LGBTQ+ Media Campaign: The Florida Keys at Brighton Pride
The Florida Keys & Key West has become a leading global destination for LGBT travel. The destination embraces tolerance and celebrates diversity with the ethos ‘One Human Family‘. Our brief was to develop relationships with influential LGBT media on behalf of The Florida Keys & Key West to raise awareness of The Florida Keys as a welcoming LGBTQ+ destination for UK travellers through media coverage, social media marketing. To achieve this, we created a campaign centered around Brighton Pride, the UK’s biggest LGBT festival.
We crafted a multi-faceted campaign with four stand-out elements: a VIP Hospitality Event – starting in central London on a special ‘Florida Keys Rainbow Bus’, we brought VIP guests including journalists and influencers to Brighton Pride, held in the iconic Preston Park. The guests were hosted in a Keys themed VIP area with views of the main stage; Social Media Marketing – we crafted a series of One Human Family social posts and encouraged the use of a dedicated hashtag #FLKeysPride; Print Advertising – in collaboration with the Brighton Argus, we produced a two-page advertorial as well as a full page advertisement which was featured in their special Pride issue; and a Brand Collaboration – we joined forces with iconic LGBTQ+ publication Gay Star News on content creation to showcase The Florida Keys & Key West as a leading LGBTQ+ destination.
