LGBTIQQ young people under the age of 25 are needed for the Bay Area Reporter's "Generation Q" column, a commentary that runs in the news section and is written by queer youth.
The column should be about 800 words and may address any issue from the viewpoint of queer youth; your audience is a mixed-generation, mixed-race, mixed-gender LGBT readership of over 70,000 people. Topics are open and have in the past included everything from the queer youth involvement in anti-war activities, to battling sexism and racism within the gay community, to assimilation, to suicide, to transgender struggles. Pay is $25 per column. This is a great way to get published and/or articulate your ideas to a larger audience.
the Bay Area Reporter is one of the country's oldest and most widely read LGBT publications.
