Call for Articles, Stories, Photography and Artwork
In June of 2020, the Boston Pride Committee will mark 50 years of Boston Pride. The first Boston Pride March took place in 1970, one year after the storied Stonewall Riots. Since then, Boston Pride has played an integral role in the political and cultural successes of the LGBTQ+ movement, both locally and nationally.
The Boston Pride Guide is the official annual publication of the Boston Pride Committee. As the official magazine of Boston Pride, it is the go-to source for all Pride-related information — fresh and direct from the organization that plans the annual events and programs. Boston Pride is dedicated to delivering a Guide of the highest quality, which offers not only event-specific information, but also unique, community-generated content developed exclusively for the Boston Pride Guide.
The Guide enjoys extensive circulation and a diverse readership. It is distributed in 30,000 print copies to over 500 locations in New England. Since 2016, the digital version of Guide has received over 61,000+ reads, 501,000 impressions, and read in 135 countries on all continents! Print copies are made available at all Boston Pride events. You can read previous editions of the magazine below.
The Boston Pride Guide is created with a volunteer-driven editorial and management team. 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 highly visible and far reaching publication to showcase articles, stories, and art.
If you’re interested in pitching a story idea or contributing art for the 2020 Pride Guide, please send an abstract or proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, January 30, 2020 at 5:00 PM. Abstracts will be reviewed by an Editorial Board and contributors will have a final deadline dependent on each project. The Guide is printed and distributed on May 14th.
