Help Honor the
LGBT Class of 2008


The Advocate needs your help in honoring the best and brightest of the LGBT class of 2008. Read on for details.

Project: Outstanding LGBT Graduates

What it is:The Advocate is currently accepting nominations for outstanding LGBT graduates who are creating postgraduate projects and organizations designed to benefit LGBT people.

Who we'll select: The magazine is looking for young people who are using new ways of thinking about LGBT issues to create innovative approaches to activism and/or philanthropy. They can be starting an organization, running for office, launching an awareness campaign, or something completely different.

What we'll do with it:The Advocate's Pride issue will present the finalists and their projects. The feature will become an annual event in our Pride issue.

How to Apply: Anyone can nominate a student who is about to graduate high school, college, or graduate/professional school in spring 2008. You are also welcome to nominate yourself. The application must include answers to the following questions as well as any other supporting data:

  • The student's name, school, and area of study.
  • What is the project? (Be specific! What will you do? Who does it help? Why is it important? How is it innovative?)
  • How will the project make an impact on gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and/or transgenders?
  • What is the time frame for getting this project up and running?
  • How will the student's project be funded?

When you've rounded up all that information, send it to, where you may also send any questions or comments. Please put "Graduates" in the subject line.
