GALPAL Launch Party
Jasmine Sassounian founded GALPAL in 2015 having been inspired by the value of her friendships with gay men and wanted to find a way for others to have the same type of friendships. Jasmine was touched by the difficulties that youths and others struggling with their sexuality face, especially when they do not have a supportive person to talk with. Jasmine created GALPAL to provide a resource to those who may need support and advice, as well as to help connect individuals of any sexual orientation with a new best friend.
The launch party for GALPAL took place onThursday July 28th at the Huntley Hotel Santa Monica and many celebrities were in attendance including Perez Hilton and Alessandra Torresani. The event included numerous activities including a champagne lunch, cocktails, MAC makeovers, manicures by Merrick Fisher, and more.
GALPAL Founder Jasmine Sassounian said “We believe that love takes on every shape and form, we need to celebrate the type of love that transcends sex and traditional romantic relationships,” safounder of GALPAL. “Whether it be between a straight woman and a gay man, straight man and a gay woman, or between an individual questioning their sexuality seeking platonic companionship, GALPAL seeks to create those meaningful connections by bringing people together who may not have otherwise had the opportunity to meet.” GALPAL Partner Ian Maxion added “What drew me to GALPAL is the company’s objective to bridge the gap between the LGBT and the straight community. It’s a safe and fun place for people to connect with the simple basis of being who you truly are.”
