    So basically, my next assignment for my writing class is to choose 5 images that are related to one another that focuses on a central theme.


    Theme: I want to discus society’s prototypes of homosexuality, specifically gay men. By bringing this subject to light, more people will be informed about the negative stereotypes that are perpetuated every day. With the huge controversy that is still involved in the discussion of homosexuality, the main arsenal that an opposition can use is the negative connotations that are related to homosexual men, which are constantly shown by the media. These stereotypes are perpetuated in shows like, “Will and Grace,” and are used to establish a default image of a gay man and I need to address this issue.

    What i will need from you guys is a simple picture of you (clothes on) just doing whatever.

    I found a loop hole to getting more than 5 images by making my final image a photo that i edit, which will consist of many different gay men who form the broad spectrum of the gay rainbow.

    I would greatly appreciate some volunteers to let me use their image for my assignment to show how many different types of gay men there are!

    ha all of those shots are freaking amazing, but they arn't quite what i'm looking for, what would be the best is a simple shot of you standing there in a plain colored shirt. I'm basically going to edit together a cliche rainbow from the different guys shirts.

    AMoonHawk saidWouldn't it be better if you search the profiles and determine which pictures best suit your need then send the person an email and request if you can use their picture for said purpose. After all the assignment is for you to do the work, not get others to do it for you.


    He's just going to find alot of pictures of guys standing in front of a mirror with no shirt on.

    My only suggestion is to talk with your professor abou this alleged "loop hole". Its one of those things that could come back and bite you in the butt... since it "isnt in the spirit of the assignment". I am sure part of the assignment is to work within the constraints of the 'rules'.

    I'd just hate for what sounds like an otherwise great topic, to get overshadowed by "cheating".

    Just my 2cents
