U.S. Embassy Launches LGBT Logo Contest
To commemorate International Pride Month in June and Athens Pride 2012, U.S. Embassy Athens is pleased to announce the launch of a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transengered (LGBT) Pride logo contest. We are looking for an original design that represents LGBT pride. The winning designer will receive an iPad 2 and the winnning logo will be used on the Embassy’s Facebook page during the month of June. LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence of the LGBT community -- promoting self-affirmation, visibility as a social group, and celebrating diversity. The deadline for submissions is June 15.
The contest is open to Greek citizens 18 and over. Entries can be submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or directly through the Facebook contest page at http://goo.gl/17Ulq.
“Pride month is a time for gratitude, for joy, and of course, for pride – pride in ourselves, in our families and friends, in our colleagues, in our community.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaking at an LGBT Pride Month Celebration, June 2011.
