A Day In Gay America: Take a Photo Aug. 12 for Advocate

Make a note on your calendar and on Friday, August 12, 2011, take a self-portrait or have a friend take a photograph of you, doing anything that says something about who you are as an LGBT American. It could be included in The Advocate's "A Day in Gay America."

The Advocate wants a photo of your life on that single day, Friday, August 12, 2011 — with your family or friends or on your own, at work or at play, on your 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 and in the November 2011 print issue.

You don’t need to be a professional photographer! Just make a note on your calendar, get your camera ready, and on Friday, August 12, 2011, take a self-portrait or have a friend take a photograph of you, doing anything that says something about who you are as an LGBT American.

The instructions are simple:

Step 1: Go to the menu on your digital camera and set the photo resolution (or file size) to its highest setting (or largest file size, up to but not more than 5 MB). Photos that are low-res don’t print well so we can’t use them in the print magazine, only online. Lo-resolution photos will automatically be considered for Advocate.com.

Step 2: Take that picture any time between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm on Friday August 12, 2011.

Step 3: Go to Advocate.com/DayInGayAmerica and upload your photo no later than Wednesday, August 19.

For more rules ans specifics, visit Advocate.com right now and don't forget to snap a picture on August 12 to be included in "A Day in Gay America."
