WEST TISBURY, Mass. (April, 2014) – EQL Destinations of Weddings—a highly stylized print publication

committed to the celebration of Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender (LBGT) weddings and destinations—is

expected to be the hottest print magazine launch of 2014.

“Never in my wildest dreams did we expect such a response,” enthuses Leslie Hurd, long-time niche

wedding magazine publisher. “Even without seeing nothing more than a ‘mock-up’ of EQL, advertisers are

reserving space … distributors are asking for more copies than we anticipated … and fans of our social media

efforts are requesting subscriptions.”

Slotted for a May debut, EQL Destinations for Weddings will bring to the marketplace glorious, highly

visual editorial content, brimming with comprehensive coverage of the world’s most enchanting dream

weddings exclusively for gays and lesbians.

“By launching EQL, we hope to inspire gay and lesbian couples as they plan for this wonderful life

event,” offers Hurd. Along with engaging features and informative columns, EQL Destinations for Weddings will

showcase magnificent photography, which will serve to complement every page. “Both readers and advertisers

will love the editorial environment we are creating. It’s going to be something very special.”

Each artful page will convey the luxurious feel of the finest look-book, and feature exquisitely

photographed reportage on world-class destinations, elegant event spaces, stunning wedding and honeymoon

fashions, amazing décor designs, and of course, romantic personal stories of love and commitment.

“The photography in EQL is really the icing on the wedding cake … simply delicious,” smiles Hurd who

will soon announce the key members of the biannual publication’s creative team.

“At this very important time in our nation’s history, remarks Hurd, “I feel honored to be introducing EQL

Destinations for Weddings—a non-political magazine that has one focus—to be a testament to the joy of

celebrating love, love and more love.”

Census. Statistics presented by the World Travel & Tourism Council reveal that the LBGT market alone is

estimated at $55 billion and is growing at a rate three times faster than mainstream travel.
