Gay & Sober is committed to representing all the beautiful people in our colorful and diverse community.

ALL genders, ethnicities, ages, and sizes are welcomed to participate in this photo shoot.


Those selected to be cast in the photo shoot for our 2022 ad campaign, will be compensated with a ticket to either the GSM Conference or the famous Dance on the River cruise! All participants will be provided with complimentary lunch and apparel. The shoot will be at our photo studio loft in Long Island City on October 16th in New York City. 


You are welcomed to submit a vertical photo for us to use in a future story on Instagram. Please send pictures of yourself and make it rock n roll themed. Here are some creative ideas: Punk Rock hair, wearing a black leather or jean jacket, holding a guitar or your favorite rock album, or slick your hair in the style of Elvis or Grease. The more creative the submissions, the better! Submit your digital photo via email to

*Please note: the studio has a max capacity. So we will only be selecting 12 individuals, not including the photographer, assistant, and hair & make up artist.
