For the last seven years, tons of you from every corner of America posted photos and shared your lives as part of this annual special report. The response was terrific, and we’re putting together a big LGBT photo album again in 2018, plus we've streamlined the process to make it even easier.
To participate, all you have to do is post a photo or video on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #DayInLGBTQ on Tuesday, December 1.
So get out your camera or camera phone, because we want to see what happens in your lives from dawn to late at night all over America on a single day. We want to see every aspect of LGBTQ 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 selfie 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.
Please think of A Day in LGBTQ America as one way you can help The Advocate dispel what the religious right tries to sell America about LGBTQ people, and simultaneously, your photos will inspire young people with the power of the project's hopeful message.
Oh, wait, one more thing: We will peruse photos and select a handful to transform into special digital covers of The Advocate. Just tweet or Instagram a photo with the hashtag #DayInLGBTQ, and it could be you on the next cover.
