Advertising and Promotion

Poster Promotion Policy

We post materials with content related to promoting an event sponsored or presented by Gay City: Seattle’s LGBTQ Center, its immediate partners, or events in designated areas. All event posters should align with Gay City’s mission and address at least one of the Social Determinants of Health.

For consideration, please submit the artwork, links, budget (if available), name of sponsoring organization or office and its contact information, date, location, and price of entry/service to communications@gaycity.org. Please read carefully and follow the instructions below:

  • Posting materials must be submitted to the Marketing Department for approval in person or by emailing communications@gaycity.org.
  • All materials and events must conform to state and local laws and the policies of Gay City. No posters will be approved if they are of a nature that can be considered obscene, discriminatory, libelous, promoting illegal activity, or conveying a message in conflict with the mission of Gay City.
  • An organization responsible for improper posting may subsequently lose the privilege of posting information at Gay City. In addition, any event improperly advertised, which utilizes Gay City’s space, may be canceled.
  • Once approved, postings will be displayed for up to two weeks or until 12 hours after the event.
  • After approval, postings must be provided in print to Gay City if the request submitted through email.
