Remember
That the
LGBT+
Community is
not a
Monolith#brightonSEO
Sometimes the
more inclusive
thing to do isn’t
the same as
abstracted ‘best
practice’

LGBT+ Content
to Existing in

target group
within the LGBT+
community
#brightonSEO
What Can We Learn?
Work with existing
organizations
already in the
community

community’ means
wider coverage, both
in LGBT+ targeted
media and general
media

focused on
physical spaces,
digital marketing
allowed for far
wider audience

in mind when

specific campaigns
#brightonSEO
Tl;dr
Pride Month Only
‘Rainbow
washing’/’pinkwas
hing’ comes across
negatively to
much of LGBT+
audience
#brightonSEO
Tl;dr
LGBTQ+ consumers
are hungry for
marketing that
represents them
fairly and
authentically – they
are already part of
your audience!
#brightonSEO
Tl;dr
Work directly
with LGBT+
creators and
organisations
#brightonSEO
Tl;dr
Identify specific
target market
beyond ‘LGBT+’
#brightonSEO
Tl;dr
Have flexibility
with best
practices if it
makes content
more inclusive
