Publisher Looking for Gay/Lesbian Marriage Stories

A call for submissions from Cleis Press for a new book about gay and lesbian couples:

"We at Cleis Press want to take positive action to raise awareness in the wake of the passage of Proposition 8. To that end, we are publishing a book (and quickly!) entitled My Gay Marriage, a collection of personal reflections by married gays and lesbian—regardless of whether those marriages are legally recognized. Our book will show many wonderful and moving examples of committed couples and enduring same-sex marriages and families. Both thoughtful and provocative, My Gay Marriage will educate and inspire readers about this basic civil right.

We hope to send a powerful message to the public about this movement based on love—and to further galvanize what we see as the chief civil rights movement of today. The proceeds from My Gay Marriage will go to activist organizations, such as Marriage Equality USA and Join the Impact.

We would love to include you in our book. We see you as an important voice for this cause and would welcome your participation. Here’s an opportunity to share the story of your relationship—in a loving and moving context. Would you consider writing a brief personal essay (3000 - 5000 words) about your experience of same-sex marriage? We’d so greatly appreciate your time and consideration of this.

Again, many thanks, and we hope to hear from you soon!"
