To  our valued community,

Let’s get right to the point: today, we’re asking for your help. Please join our team of investors by participating in our Wefunder crowdfunding campaign (minimum investment: $100, approximately €85). The funds raised ( $140K+ to date, a heartfelt thank you to the 300+ participants!) will help misterb&b pass  this very difficult period, and vigorously bounce back as soon as travel resumes.

The Covid-19 coronavirus crisis hit us right when our growth was exceeding 20% per month, thanks to the addition of a large catalogue of LGBTQ-friendly hotels on our platform last December. Travel restrictions abruptly halted this growth, preventing us from reaching the break-even point and becoming profitable for the first time. For seven months now, misterb&b has been in hibernation mode with dramatic cost reductions, a hiring freeze, temporary unemployment, pay cuts, and the aid  of governmental and private relief funds.

Despite these efforts, and the partial return of our activity between June and September, we must admit that the months ahead are going to be extremely difficult. In our hearts, we do not believe that travel will resume for real before the summer of 2021. That’s nine  more months to go!

We hate to interrupt your day with this message, as we can imagine you have other things to read or do. But there you have it. If every person who opened this email, and could  afford it, joined our team of investors on WeFunder (minimum investment is $100, around €85), misterb&b could continue to thrive for years to come, and offer the entire LGBTQ travel community the opportunity to experience  a more welcoming world.

When we created misterb&b, many told us that it would never work, claiming  the “market” was too small. Yet, six years on misterb&b has grown to become the world’s largest LGBTQ-friendly accommodation booking site. Our teams (around twenty people currently) work tirelessly on a daily basis to offer you the best possible experience. By becoming an investor, you will show them how much their work means to you.

We imagine that most recipients will ignore this message. We just hope you take a minute to  think about the importance of a platform like ours in your life as an LGBTQ traveler. Imagine the next time you search for a LGBTQ-friendly stay, you realize that misterb&b no longer exists? This is not what we want, and we can imagine it’s not what you want either. We thank you all for your time and attention.

Gay Brighton

The seaside city is known as Britain’s unofficial gay capital, claiming the country’s highest proportion of same-sex households. The city is famous for its open attitude, its vivacious nightlife and of course its annual Brighton Pride extravaganza - an annual summer festival that usually runs for an entire weekend. You’ll find the whole city to be LGBTQ friendly, but if you’re looking to experience gay Brighton at its best, you’ll be happy to know that Kemptown is the bustling heart of the LGBTQ community. 

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Brighton became a clandestine destination for the LGBTQ community and in the 1930s, the city started to flourish as a gay haven. Whispers of Brighton’s unique diversions, as well a its special pleasures, helped turn it into a gay destination in the post-war years.

Brighton Pride is arguably the UK’s biggest pride festival gathering over 170,000 people annually. This pride consists of various events including a huge gay party in the gay village, a dog show and a film festival. The festival’s aim is to celebrate pride with purpose, raising awareness and funds to support local charities and communities. So being a part of the Brighton Pride means celebrating your queer spirit and partying for a good cause both at the same time. 

If you are looking for a seachange with an LGBTQ difference in the UK, head south to Brighton and experience your pride.
