Share Your Story With You Can Be Anything

We are looking for short videos and stories of encouragement to provide positive examples of successful LGBT individuals in all professions.

Your video should convey what your profession is as well as provide words of encouragement. The important thing is to encourage our LGBT youth to follow their dreams and not let their sexuality inhibit their success.

If you are not LGBT but instead are a straight ally and have an encouraging story to tell, please feel free to share it. A story of a LGBT coworker from your prospective may provide for a unique take which may be beneficial to someone.

Please keep the following in mind when creating your video or writing your story...

  • No profanity or negativity
  • Speak slowly and clearly so everyone understands you
  • Try to set the camera somewhere steady
  • Please title your video "You Can Be Anything" and at least include a tag with the name of the profession you are speaking about

Need us to film your story for you? If you live in the South Florida area, we are available anytime. If you live elsewhere, contact us and we will see what arrangements can be made.
