Seeking Photo for the New "Our Bodies, Ourselves"

By Christine Cupaiuolo — June 13, 2011

Calling all out and proud African American lesbians! Due to a last-minute replacement, we need a photo, specifically of one or more couples, for the new edition of “Our Bodies, Ourselves,” scheduled for publication in October.

If you think you have a great shot, and know you can gather permissions by 5 P.M. TUESDAY, JUNE 14, please email the photo to

Everyone in the photo needs to be willing to sign a release giving permission for it to appear in the Sexual Orientation chapter. We’ll also need a signed release from the photographer, who will receive photo credit. These are all standard one-page forms required for publication. Names of people in the photo will not be published unless requested.

This ninth edition of “Our Bodies, Ourselves” focuses on reproductive health and sexuality. It has been under development for more than a year and includes dozens of personal stories and essential, up-to-date information about gender identity, sexual orientation, birth control, abortion, pregnancy and birth, perimenopause, menopause, health issues such as breast and ovarian cancers, and sexuality and sexual health as we age.

Thanks for reading, and feel free to share this message!
