Become a Contributor

Do you have a passion for Vancouver’s LGBTQ community? We’d love to have you part of our team!

Become a contributor for GayVancouver.NetWe’re looking for passionate writers, photographers and videographers to cover the people and events that make Vancouver’s LGBTQ community so vibrant.

Heck, if you have a unique perspective we’ll even consider giving you your own channel, just like The Foods Gays.

While contributing to GayVancouver.Net is on a volunteer basis, we will help promote you – just like our other contributors – by giving you a media presence in front of our 10,000+ website visitors every month and to our thousands of Facebook and Twitter followers. All contributions will be considered as a featured article on our front page rotating splash.

We’ll even send opportunities your way. We’re asked to cover a lot of things, but we can’t do it all. If it falls into your area of expertise we won’t hesitate passing it along.

Interested? Send us an email with a sample of what you have to offer. But before you do, here are a few things you should know:

  1. Contributions must not be a sales pitch – our readers want information, not a hard sell
  2. Contributions must have an LGBTQ perspective combined with a Vancouver angle
  3. Contributions must be between 300 and 500 words in length
  4. Contributions should include one or two image options and you must have permission to use those images (we’ll even help you if you have trouble finding suitable images)
  5. Contributions must be original and must have never been published before online or in any other medium
  6. Contributions cannot be re-published anywhere else for a period of two months from the date of publication on GayVancouver.Net
  7. Contributions will be edited and we reserve the right to reject any contributions that fall outside our guidelines or editorial focus

Still interested? Send us an email with a sample of what you have to offer.
