Cleis Press call for story submissions from married same-sex couples

A letter from Brenda Knight, Associate Publisher of Cleis Press:
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, for which the mission is to educate and inspire readers about this basic civil right. Our book will show many wonderful and moving examples of committed couples and enduring same-sex spouses and families.

Our aim is 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 today. The proceeds from My Gay Marriage will go to like-minded organizations, such as www.MarriageEquality.org.

We greatly appreciate your time and consideration of this. We see you as an important voice for this cause and would welcome your participation of the story of your relationship. We are requesting your essay be between 3000 and 5000 words. Again, many thanks, and we hope to hear from you soon!

Many thanks,

Brenda Knight

Please email Brenda directly with your submissions.
