At HuffPost, we're kicking off an exciting new project and we'd love for you to participate.
It's called "The Moment I Knew," and it's a user-submitted video series where readers tell the stories of life-changing moments they have experienced.
Each section of HuffPost has chosen a different theme -- whether it was the moment you knew you were in love, the moment you knew your marriage was over, the moment you knew you loved college, or the moment you knew you were broke. You can also tell us about any other life-defining moment you'd like to share. The possibilities are endless!
Here on HuffPost Gay Voices we've suggested that you tell us about "The Moment I Knew I Was Gay / Lesbian / Bi / Transgender / Queer / Gender-Nonconforming / Etc..."
We'd love to hear (and share) your story of the first time you became aware of your sexuality or gender and how it did or didn't align with what your family, your friends, society, or even you expected.
It's really easy to contribute!
You can create your video using YouTube or Vimeo and send the link/URL of the video to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you create your video using your laptop or mobile phone and have a video file, please attach the file in an email to email@example.com. Your video submission is subject to our User Terms.
Please make sure to include your full name with your video submission. Each video should be 30-60 seconds long, and should feature only you, speaking right into the camera telling your story. Please start your story with the words "The moment I knew..."
We can't wait to hear from you!
And if you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
