Yo PDX gays, lesbians, trans, queers and more it’s time to represent! The Advocate magazine is holding its 2nd annual “Day in Gay America,” putting together a big ol’ gay photo album, and you better believe the left coast is gonna be a part of it.
…get your cameras charged and ready, because we want to see what happens in your lives from dawn to late at night all over America on Friday, August 12, 2011. We want to see every aspect of gay life, from the mundane to the insane, from the glamorous to the gritty, whether you’re on an adventure or experiencing a quiet moment of solace.
You don’t need to be a professional photographer. Just mark your calendar, and on August 12 take a self-portrait or have a friend photograph you or your family or friends, doing anything that says something about who you are as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender person in the United States. The best photographs taken on that single day in the United States will be featured in a photo essay titled “A Day in Gay America” on Advocate.com and in the November 2011 issue of The Advocate.
Instructions on how to submit will be forthcoming on the Advocate’s website. And you can check out all of 2010′s LGBT yearbook in the 4 links below:
