We want the voices of gay, bisexual, and asexual men to be part of the conversation.*
We hear about certain topics in the headlines: marriage equality, discrimination, changing families, expectations of men in relationships.
Those are important…and we also know there’s a lot more going on in your lives.
We’re looking for your stories. Our core mission is to spark conversations about what it means to be a man in the 21st century, and those conversations aren’t complete without your voices. Some ideas to get you thinking:
People’s expectations of you as a gay/bi/asexual man (stereotypes and reality)
Has your sexual orientation affected your work/school life?
Being/Becoming a parent
Being “out” as a teen/young adult
Your experience as an elder, person of color, person with disability who is gay/bi/asexual
Why you’ve remained in the closet
We also want your stories that have little to nothing to do with being gay, bisexual, or asexual. We get it. You’re a person first. We’re looking for men to write about:
Send your pitch or completed work to [email protected]. Written, video, and photo submissions welcome. General guidelines: harm none; no sexist, racist, or homophobic language; no pornographic or sexually explicit material; make sure it’s readable; if you’re not sure about any of these things, ask.
We’re not looking for expert writers. We’re looking for stories. Your stories.
* Yes, there are a lot more – pansexual, demisexual, greysexual, and on – and you are all welcome.
