The Advocate invites its readers to share a slice of their life and illustrate the diversity of LGBT America.
HERE MEDIA – October 25, 2012 (LOS ANGELES) — The Advocate, the world’s leading gay news source, once again wants to capture the numerous layers that make up the lives of LGBT Americans. The brand will be accepting photo submissions for the 3rdAnnual “A Day in Gay America,” celebrating the fabric of the LGBT community. On Friday, November, 9, 2012, take a snapshot with your family or friends or on your own, at work or at play, having adventures or experiencing a quiet moment of solace—anything from the mundane to the insane, from the glamorous to the gritty. The best photographs taken on that single day in the United States, as determined by the editors of The Advocate, will be featured in a photo essay called “A Day in Gay America” on Advocate.com.
“This is one of our very favorite features to put together each year. Seeing how many people across the country participate, by being out and proud, is no small indication of how far our equality movement has come. So many of us are still isolated by geography or circumstance, sometimes even by our own notions of what it looks like to be LGBT. It’s important for us all to really see each other: young and old, men and women, all across the orientation and gender continuum, and of all races and ethnicities,” says Matthew Breen, Editor in Chief of The Advocate.
To participate in “A Day in Gay America,” you don’t need to be a professional photographer! Just make a note on your calendar, get your camera ready, and on Friday, November 9, 2012, between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m., snap a self-portrait or have a friend take a photograph of you, doing anything that says something about who you are as an LGBT in America.
After you’ve captured a snapshot into your life on November 9, go to www.Advocate.com/DayInGayAmerica and upload your photo no later than Wednesday, November 21, 2012. The Advocate will then post a selection of photos (at the editors’ discretion) during the week of December 10, 2012, on Advocate.com.
The Advocate is currently available to consumers via the print publication, online at Advocate.com, and on mobile devices. Follow The Advocate on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/TheAdvocateand on Twitter at @TheAdvocateMag.
