All About www.Pink-Pound.co.uk

What is Pink-Pound all about?

The Pink-Pound was an invention of cynical marketing companies, who recognised a lucrative profit for their clients in the Gay market. £6 billion a year, they said our custom is worth.

But the Pink-Pound is in our pockets, and we should decide how to spend it.

www.Pink-Pound.co.uk is different from any other business service (gay or straight) because it doesn't exist to make a profit. It exists to encourage gay-owned and gay-friendly businesses to earn your loyalty and give you the benefits.

So what does www.Pink-Pound.co.uk give me?

First of all you get the power to Judge which companies are worthy of your Pink-Pound. And then you can find them, and take advantage of their Member offers, or whatever Members decided made them worthy of their Pink-Pound.

As well as that, you can:

  • Send Lesbian and Gay e-cards
  • Win Daily Prizes in Pinky's Prize Draw
  • Publicise LGBT events in your area
  • Get reminders of your own appointments, anniversaries and events

Who does the Pink-Pound benefit?

Everything in www.Pink-Pound.co.uk aims to offer a genuine benefit to:

  • Individual Members
  • Gay-friendly and gay-owned businesses
  • The LGBT Community as a whole

It Benefits Members

www.Pink-Pound.co.uk is a service for the LGBT Community, but it is also a service for everyone who shares our values. We are proud to empower all Members to benefit businesses who benefit them!

It Benefits Gay-friendly and Gay-owned Businesses

Lesbian and Gay people spend billions of pounds every year. Without a penny's spend on advertising and marketing, businesses can present their case for a share in Pink-Pound (preferably with a valuable Member offer!) and if Members decide they're worthy of loyalty, they will receive it without any risk.

It Benefits the LGBT Community as a Whole

Mutual benefit seems to be the most successful way to remove all kinds of barriers since life began. So www.Pink-Pound.co.uk can help to dissolve the feeling of awkwardness of association between the gay community and straight society by mutual benefit, familiarity and respect.
