Erika is a thoughtful lesbian blogger, who shares stories of her life and marriage. Her blog sports the snappy title Be Gay About It.
Erika has begun a project designed to show gay women and men living lives of dignity and grace. Such stories, she hopes, will inspire those coming out, questioning, or who struggle with their orientation.
"Too often we hear stories about LGBT people being rejected because of their sexual orientation or gender identity through bullying, hate crimes and discrimination," she writes. "BGAI Together is a grassroots storytelling project where LGBTQ persons and their allies unite to counter this adversity with positive stories of love and affirmation."
Erika wants your stories—published or unpublished—from your blog, clip sheet, hard drive or bottom drawer. It doesn't matter if you're gay, or a straight ally. She wants to hear the everyday tales of acceptance and celebration.
But hurry. She needs your submission by stumps on Thursday, January 14. Click on the picture for more details.
And while you're on her blog, read it. You'll be glad you did.
