We are more than a newspaper


The Georgia Voice offers three products: a bi-weekly newspaper; an actively updated, interactive website ( visit us at www.thegavoice.com); and Destination: Gay Atlanta, Atlantas official LGBT travel guide published annually in partnership with the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau. On stands every other Friday, our full-color newspaper is free to readers across the metro-Atlanta area and free to download in a page-by-page format online. We regularly print 7,000 copies, more for special issues, and estimate a readership of 18,000 in metro Atlanta and Savannah. Our page-count averages well above our 28-page minimum, with special issues topping 80 pages. There are more than 4,000 subscribers to our weekly e-mail blast that summarizes developing news and upcoming events. Our website, www.thegavoice.com, is updated daily with gay-specific breaking news, arts and events coverage. The site currently counts about 1,500 unique visitors a day (about 2,000 visits in total), and when news breaks, traffic spikes to approximately twice that and has reached as many as 18,000 unique visitors in one day. Destination: Gay Atlanta is our full-color, glossy, digestsized travel guide. It hit the streets for the first time in April 2011 with 80 pages of restaurant, retail, nightlife and lodging listings for Atlantas gay-owned and gay-friendly businesses.

The purchasing power and brand loyalty of lesbians and gay men has been thoroughly researched and reported over the past several decades. Community Marketing, Inc., a marketing research, marketing firm established in 1992, states on its website: The facts are plain: gay men and lesbians travel more, own more homes and cars, spend more on electronics, and have the largest amount of disposable income of any niche market...their dollars go toproducts, services and destinations that

recognize their unique buying preferences and offer them differentiated value. LGBT buying power in the United States in 2012 was estimated to be $790 billion according to the marketing research firm Witeck-Combs Communications. That number is expected to rise to close to $1 trillion in 2013. The LGBT community in Atlanta is large and active. In the American Community Survey (US Census Bureau) of 2005, At-

lanta ranked third in cities with the largest LGBT population at 12.8%. Only San Francisco and Seattle ranked higher. There are 250+ LGBT and AIDS-related organizations within the metro area alone and Pride attendance has placed Atlanta in the top five in the country for over a decade.
