The Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative (SIGBI) and Jagermeister are sponsoring a contest to create a LGBTQ ‘Safe Space logo.
The contest is to create a logo that public establishments can hang in their doorways or windows to show the LGBTQ+ community that they’re a safe space. According to the official release, “Through a 10-step process, entertainment venues, food and beverage locations, stores, businesses and other public venues, can become certified as a Safe Space for LGBTQ+ members of the community.”
Stacy Lentz, CEO of the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative said, “Safe Spaces uplift LGBTQ+ people by providing a place to celebrate, educate, thrive, work, shop, relax and live freely. We are excited to open the visual representation of Safe Spaces to the community and look forward to seeing the incredible submissions we receive.”
The winner of the contest will see their design become the logo used on the sticker which establishments can hang on their doorways. Plus, as an added bonus, the winner will also receive a free trip to New York City in June to experience the epic celebration that is NYC Pride.
The contest opened on April 4th and will run until April 30th. Judges for the contest include Alex Weems, Member of the Mississippi Gulf Equality Council, and award-winning graphic designer; Brenda Risch, Executive Director of Borderland Rainbow Center; Dr. Marisa Richmond, Professor of History and Women’s and Gender studies at Middle Tennessee University, and SIGBI Board Member; and Rachel Smallman, LGBTQ+ Nightlife Pioneer in Alabama.
