What we are NOT seeking

Keep it professional.
- Social gossip columns – what “reality-star”, said what. Sorry, Housewives of Atlanta.
- Dance party promotions – although content from the business perspective of starting, promoting, managing, etc is welcomed.
- Fashion/music not directly related to the LGBTQ community. Just being an LGBTQ icon doesn’t qualify. Sorry, Cher.
- Society news not related to the business or professional side of life – who is dating who. Sorry, Kardashian clan.
- Politics not directly related to the LGBT community
