Gay Ambition Is Intelligently Ambitious
Gay Ambition Is Intelligently Ambitious
Paul Collanton’s new blog and podcast, “Gay Ambition”, aims to “bring out the best” in exploring the topics of personal and professional development within LGBT society. Though “Gay Ambition” is an ambitious venture by the young entrepreneur, Collanton has already proven himself able to capture interviews from many movers and shakers within the LGBT business, sports, civil rights, and entertainment communities including former NFL player Wade Davis, author Miles Cressman, Emmy Award winner Chris Parente, and editor-in-chief of “Curve Magazine” Merryn Johns among others. Far from the mediocre interviews and expendable content viewers may see on some start-up blogs, the interviews on Gay Ambition are professionally crafted, span the whole gamut of LGBT life, and are chalked full of information worth reading that could lead one to improve one’s career life or self-growth. In addition, the social media presence of Gay Ambition is expanding, with web pages on most outlets and with the podcasts now available on iTunes. It will be exciting to see how Collanton’s venture evolves over the coming year. Given his noteworthy success at garnering memorable interviews already, I suspect that Gay Ambition will continue to expand and impress readers and listeners in the year ahead.
John Carvalho, West Hollywood Entertainment Advocate
As the LGBT community gains momentum in the state of political affairs and future LGBT generations are developing, it is imperative for us to have a conversation with those thriving to achieve their ambitions. By doing so we begin to create mentors and role models while demonstrating that the Gay Network goes beyond bars and Sunday Fun-days, we permeate in local societies, volunteer groups, churches, blogs, discussion groups, and podcasts. Paul Collanton presents a unique perspective on the ambitious paths of LGBT entrepreneurs by asking the right questions and tying along current political events affecting our community.
Paul's podcasts are both inspirational and entertaining, addressing issues relevant to the larger LGBT community in our never-ending quest for global equality.
