The “I am” Project

Get involved and submit here

Run by Equal Magazine 

the-i-am-project:

The I Am project is a new initiative, aiming to stand up against stereotypes.

Our goal is very simple: we want to compile images, videos and typed responses – of LGBT+ people telling us, what they are.

We want to create a space which can show the world just how diverse and amazing the LGBT+ community is. And how we do not fit into their rigid views, of what we ‘should’ be.

Far too often society defines us by our sexuality, or our gender.
The media portrays us so frequently as old fashioned exaggerations of what we are expected to be. A gay character will be effeminate, over the top, camp; a lesbian will be butch, Bisexuals as confused, trans men and woman as freaks or jokes…

But we want to know, who you are – what makes up the wonderful person that is you.  

So just finish the sentence: “I am….” And send it in to us!

And we will compile a massive blog, showing the diversity and wonder that is the LGBT+ community.

There are three ways you can submit to this blog: by picture, video or just as an email. Either through tumblr, or to the email address: equal.contact@gmail.com They can be as anonymous as you like!

Thank you for taking part!
Please reblog this to help spread the word!

Hard. But wonderful.

Only one response? - well we are very dissapointed in you - lovely people of tumblr. but never the less, we will add some ourselves: (from the staff members of equal)Love is…

never convenient
sticky
like one massive life long hug
everything
seemingly complicated, but so simple once its found.
allusive 
just umm, well, its kind of…. umm… well its just lovely…
being more comfortable around another person, then you are around yourself
doing nothing with someone, but having the time of your life. 
all that really matters, after all…
a bitch, for allowing some people to go through life - never finding it. 
a feeling that makes you young again.
an explosion of emotions
unconditional
unavoidable
nonsensical
wonderful.

Equal Magazine is a new online publication. Set up by a group of dedicated LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*) individuals, who wanted to find a new way to spread a positive message, and stand up against hate crimes, homophobia and discrimination.
        The aims of Equal are very simple:
To create a publication that puts out a very positive message. Instead of fighting hate with hate, we aim to overpower the negative voices of parts of the community, by showing off the amazing, creative, and unique things the LGBT+ community can produce.  
To provide a great resource for the creative and LGBT+ communities.
To provide a safe space where LGBT+ individuals can express their creativity, without fearing prejudice or discrimination
Since the inception of Equal, we have met with an overwhelmingly positive response from both the LGBT+ community, and the creative community as a whole. The publication works on a contributor basis, with over 200 people signed up to help produce each issue. Our demo edition (released in May) was read by over 2,500 people, and our subscriber base is growing daily with over 600 people subscribed to our mailing list.
This is only a start though, and just a fraction of what we would like to achieve. We will not stop in our efforts to reach as wide an audience as possible, not just from the LGBT+ community, but from anyone who is interested in seeing great art and writing, and helping the fight for equality. 
You can view our demo edition, and find out more information about Equal at: www.equalmag.net
