We are so excited for The International Wedding Summit, which is coming up in just a couple of weeks, and we are pleased to announce that Kristen Palladino, editor in chief of Equally Wed Magazine, has signed on to be a speaker for the event! Equally Wed is the nation’s premier online same-sex wedding magazine, and Kristen has expertise on gay weddings, making businesses gay-friendly, marriage equality and launching an online magazine/website!
Kirsten Ott Palladino is a seasoned veteran in the publishing world. An award-winning editor and writer, Kirsten has served as editor at several newspapers and magazines and written thousands of articles on a myriad of topics ranging from weddings, gay rights, marriage equality, food, wine, luxury, travel, spas, health and beauty to celebrity profiles, adventure, charity and art.
Along with her wife, the Athens, Ga. native launched Equally Wed, the nation’s premier online same-sex wedding magazine, in March 2010, after realizing that nothing similar existed on the market when the couple was planning their own nuptials. Not only that, traditional consumer wedding magazines had yet to cover weddings of same-sex couples. That lack set Kirsten and her wife on a mission to provide the LGBT community with its own wedding publication chock full of real gay weddings, gay-friendly wedding vendors, news about marriage equality, vetted gay-friendly honeymoon destinations and practical advice on planning a gay wedding.
Kristen has been a featured guest on CNN, CBS and multiple radio shows, as well as being covered in The New York Times, The Advocate, Get Married Magazine, Jezebel.com, AfterElton.com, Aisledash.com and more! She speaks at conferences and seminars on topics ranging from writing for magazines and launching an online magazine to gay wedding trends and marriage equality. Her syndicated gay wedding advice column runs on EquallyWed.com and CurveMag.com.
