CHICAGO — Mothers of LGBT individuals will be the focus of a new photo essay book from Windy City Times. The Chicago-based weekly newspaper is soliciting submissions from LGBTs in the Chicago area, or those formerly from Chicago, for this new project.

Just in time for the holidays, people can submit photos with their moms via email, Facebook or Twitter through Jan. 15, 2012. Windy City Times is looking for diversity in families. Once the winners are selected, a professional photo shoot will be done by Kat Fitzgerald of Mystic Images Photography (of the winning mothers with their child or children), so winners must be available in the Chicago area, although some additional photos may be used. Winners will also be asked to submit a 200-word essay about what their mother has meant to them.

Depending on the reception for this project, other books may be done with fathers, or queer parents, but the focus of this first book is on mothers.

To submit, send photos of you with your mother to: www.facebook.com/windycitymediagroup, Twitter windycitytimes1 or email editor@windycitymediagroup.com by Jan. 15, 2012. You can also submit a short essay about why you think your mother should be selected to be photographed with you. Families with multiple LGBT children are welcome to submit as well.

Images may also be used in Windy City Times newspaper.

About Windy City Times:

Windy City Times is published by Windy City Media Group, which also produces Nightspots and Windy City Queercast. Windy City Times has been serving the Chicago-area LGBT community since 1985. See www.windycitymediagroup.com .
