Join 'A Day In Gay America'

By: Editors

For the last two years, tons of you from every corner of America sent photos and shared your lives as part of The Advocate‘s annual special report,"‘A Day In Gay America." The response has been so terrific in the past that the longest-running LGBT magazine is putting together a big photo album again once again for 2012.

So get your cameras charged and ready, because The Advocate wants to see what happens in your lives from dawn to late at night all over America today Friday, November 9, 2012. They want to see every aspect of LGBT 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 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 in the United States and sent today will be featured in a photo essay titled “A Day in Gay America” on

Please think of "A Day in Gay America" as one way you can help The Advocate dispel what the Religious Right tries to sell America about LGBT people, and simultaneously your photos will inspire young people with the power of the project's hopeful message.

Help make this project a success by "liking" this post and sharing it via social media and don’t forget to check for more details and instructions on how to submit your photos to “A Day in Gay America” or send it via Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #DayInGay.
