Gaypedia, a new gay and lesbian travel portal and social networking site, launches this week with the aim of becoming the largest leisure database specifically designed for the gay community.
Gaypedia.com, which will launch on Valentine’s Day, will feature a mix of user-generated and editorial content. It will offer a database of venues and events, with a date-specific search facility and will also have a unique, gay Google tool.
Members can also add content, upload photos and videos, and diarise events and vacations, which can be shared with Gaypedia friends. As well as details of events, the portal will provide information on equality issues and legislation for gay travellers.
Gaypedia marketing director Ryan Haynes says: “With such a large international gay community, and pride festivals getting bigger and bigger, we designed a site where gays and lesbians can find everything in one place.”
Gaypedia says it hopes to branch out into other aspects of gay and lesbian lifestyles to provide an integrated, interactive information portal.
