Last year – thanks to the tremendous support of advertisers and members of the LGBTQ and ally communities – for the first time ever Boston Pride was able to produce our own Pride Guide entirely in-house and to offer this pioneering 144-page, full-color, glossy magazine freely as a service to our community. You can check the magazine out here: www.bostonpride.org/guide.

We printed 20,000 copies of the 2015 magazine and distributed them to hundreds of locations throughout New England. We also offered a digital version of the Guide that, to date, has been read more than 15,000 times in 68 different countries (that’s more than 1/3 of the world’s countries)! That means that the Guide’s 45+ contributors had their work seen by a diverse international readership, some even residing in countries with environments hostile to LGBTQ people (for example, Jamaica, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Malaysia).

Building upon last year’s success, we’re #wickedproud to announce that we’ll publish another installment of the Pride Guide for Boston Pride Week 2016. Boston Pride will once again dedicate ourselves to delivering a Guide of the highest quality, which offers not only event-specific information straight from the source, but also unique, community-generated content developed exclusively for the Boston Pride Guide.

That’s where you come in: To ensure that our content and contributors reflect the great diversity of our community, we’re seeking writers, photographers, and artists from all backgrounds who are willing to donate their talents, and are looking for a unique, highly visible place to showcase issues, stories, and ideas that matter to them.

If you’re interested in pitching a story idea for the 2016 Pride Guide, please complete the online submission form or contact the Editor-in-Chief, Michael Anthony Fowler, via e-mail: mafowler(at)bostonpride.org. All submissions will receive prompt review by the editorial team.
