Gay City Health Project has an adorable photo project going on over at their Facebook page. Use one of their “I Am ____” flyers (or create your own) and fill in the blank with a word that describes who you are. Snap a Lovely Photo of yourself, or get a friend or loved one to help you, and send it to them and they’ll happy to post it. It’s a sweet way to build Pride and community unity during Gay Pride Month.
Also, who doesn’t love a photo opportunity?
(Well, some of us full figured types aren’t always crazy about them, but as long as we can choose the flattering photo to submit, we’re delighted…)
Also check out Gay City’s website and the list of Pride Month events they’re associated with…there are some great things to do this month.
