Everyone feels like a celebrity when their photos are on a website on the internet, let’s be honest. For just that minute, you know what it is like to be Kim Kardashian.

Well here is your chance at mediocre internet fame. SEND US PICTURES OF YOUR GORGEOUS GORGEOUS SELVES from Pride 2011. Once Pride wraps in Calgary (we think the last of Pride in Canada) we will have a special Super Prideful Gaily Gaynadian  OMG YOU’RE EFFING Beautiful Reader Photo Gallery Exhibit (yes, it is a thing). So send us your pictures!

(I have a feeling this might turn into a tumblr….)

Here are a few guidelines though:

+ please send high quality images that are at least 600 pixels wide
+ email photos to
+ ensure that your subject line reads “I’m Effing Beautiful Pride Photo Exhibit + YOUR name”
+ please name your images “firstnamelastname.pride”
+ if your photos include friends of yours please get their permission and include their first names (from left to right)
+ tell us the location or name of the pride festival you attended/where the photo was taken
+ favourite memory/thing/moment of pride 2011

Have a favourite pride photo from the vaults? You can send that too! Just tell us what year it is from plus all of the other details.
