Calling all writers! Our theme this year is Your Voice, Your Power . The Pride and Joy Foundation soft launched a guest blog summer schedule with the theme Your Voice, Your Power to amplify LGBTQ+ voices by publishing them on our blog and promoting them to our audience. We are excited to continue elevating queer voices with our guest blog series for Fall 2023.
We invite guest writers to pitch their ideas for publication and promotion on our blog Here are some examples of the types of guest blogs for ideas:
LGBTQ+ authors with published books and/or books coming out
You could write your own post about your book and why you wrote it, who inspires you, a bit on the process or you can request our standard list of author questions for an interview type approach. Here are a few examples
Op-Eds & Essay
Advice & Expertise
LGBTQ+ Owned Business
Similar to our authors, you could write your own article, or request a standard interview type approach.
Other- Pitch us your idea/draft!
We are open to all things LGBTQ+ so pitch us your idea
*If you use content from another blog that was previously published, we ask that you change the content at least 50%.
At this time, there is no financial compensation for guest writers. We are actively seeking sponsorship of our blog articles to provide stipends to our authors. The Pride and Joy Foundation operates on a part-time and volunteer team of two. Organizations interested in sponsorship can contact our Volunteer Executive Director, [email protected].

You are more than welcome to send us general license stock images. If you take images/photos that are not yours, please make sure you have permission to share and credit the original artist.
