PRIDE Wireless(TM) Announces Launch of the Nation's First LGBTQ Cellphone Service

Nationwide Service Begins on National Coming Out Day - Sunday, Oct. 11; Subscribers Choose LGBTQ Non-Profits to Receive Funding Through 'Giveback Program'

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 9, 2015) - The nation's first lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) wireless company, PRIDE Wireless, will launch its wireless services on Sunday, Oct. 11 - National Coming Out Day. The company will march that same day in the 45th Annual Atlanta Pride Parade to show its pride and officially "flip the switch" to begin its service for new subscribers, announced Patrick Adams, founder and CEO of PRIDE Wireless.

The company was founded for LGBTQ people, their friends, family and others who want to be part of this exciting opportunity by switching to a wireless company that advocates for and commits to a 'giveback' program benefiting the LGBTQ community. PRIDE Wireless operates on the same 4G/LTE networks as major providers, and promises "fabulous" customer support. With competitive pricing, PRIDE Wireless will offer a unique and flexible family plan, one in which subscribers get to create their own "family of choice," providing savings for ALL types of LGBTQ families.

"All of us at PRIDE Wireless are ecstatic to see this day arrive," said Adams, "and the launch of the first gay cell phone company in the world. National Coming Out Day is the perfect day to begin our service and have our 'rainbow' voices heard. We're working hard to provide a fast and dependable network at an affordable price, and backing it by stellar customer service." Adams added, "By joining our PRIDE Wireless family, each customer will support the LGBTQ non-profit of their choice without spending an additional dime."

Through the PRIDE Wireless giveback plan, subscribers will be able to go online and choose a non-profit organization from a broad list that support LGBTQ health, safety and equality. Their chosen organization will receive an initial $10, then 2.5 percent of the subscriber's monthly service plan fee thereafter. In addition, non-profit LGBTQ organizations that want to receive an additional 2.5 percent can do so by promoting and signing-on PRIDE Wireless subscribers through their organization, giving them a possible 5 percent total.

Funds will be automatically distributed quarterly to each recipient organization, and continue as long as the subscriber remains with PRIDE Wireless, or until the subscriber chooses a different organization to receive their contribution.
