Pink Weddings™ launches “TogetherTV™”

Gino Meriano founder of Pink Weddings™ the group launches UK’s first and dedicated channel for same-sex couples, their families and friends – TogetherTV™. broadcasting soon.

Gino Meriano, founder of Pink Weddings comments “It has been an amazing 2009 so far seeing the launch of the designer civil partnership show hosted at the Andaz Hotel London, our book Civil Partnership –  a guide to the perfect day and now TogetherTV”.

The channel will aim to offer a wide range of high quality productions from real-life documentaries, movies, topical news from around the world, valued ideas and actual weddings with couples in the UK and beyond.

Meriano continues “We are constantly seeking new ways to let same-sex couples know the unique and different ways they can show their love and commitment. It will also go further to breakdown stereotypes and build a more inclusive society. I am very excited about the launch and a chance to finally have a channel that is the voice for same sex couples, their families and friends”.

At launch, TogetherTV will be available on IPTV* and online giving everyone the opportunity of being able to view the channel anywhere around the world, from a laptop, TV to a mobile phone and iPod”.

Building into the overall package of the TV Polari Group, the team at Pink Weddings believes this will become an exciting channel and one that will grow over time as has the Civil Partnership market since 2005. Over 30,000 couples have already entered into a Civil Partnership with an estimated market equating  to an additional £10 million per year and the rolling survey already shows  planning  well into 2012 (34% for 2009, 52% for 2010, 12% for 2011 and 3% for 2012, dated July 2009 source – Pink Weddings Ltd Survey) Join our Face Book


About ginomeriano

Over the years I have delivered training programmes surrounding the Civil Partnership and Equality Act. I travelled around the UK working alongside the Registration Service preparing for the Civil Partnership Act and companies, public authorities on Equality and Diversity. I've consulted for many regional and local councils, police, national health service and businesses to name but a few. I have taken the next step in bringing innovative consultancy to a different level when approaching such a sensitive subject as the LGBT community in business and society. Coming from a marketing and events background and passionate about service delivery I launched alongside my marketing and web design company Choices which later merged with Exoro Ltd two new companies Pink Weddings and the Gay Wedding Show Ltd. Having worked for myself since 1998 I have seen many changes in the law that have had a true impact on how we as a society stand today. Since our research started in early 2000 we took the approach to launch dedicated websites for same sex couples and after a lot of research we finally launched Pink Weddings in September of 2003 and the Gay Wedding Show in November 2004. We have seen major changes in Law and it's time to embrace these new Acts, understand the impact they will have and how best you as a person, manager or organisation can adopt them without the fear factor. I have always been headstrong, full of passion with a firm belief that same-sex relationships should be recognised and fully accepted in society. The gay community should be considered as equal and that through the power of training, consulting and campaigning the community will be heard and true social acceptance will be achieved. I have been seen on a number of media channels and worked alongside many partners to help raise the profile of Equality and Diversity.
