Celebrating the Best in LGBTQ DC

2011: WHAT A YEAR! From Pride shenanigans at the Newseum to dancing with you at MIXTAPE, She.Rex, and Siren, and even relaxing with you on gay beaches up and down the East Coast, we’ve loved every minute. Now, we want to look back and celebrate that best that 2011 brought to our home, the District of Columbia.

That’s right: we’re announcing our first ever (and soon to be annual) BYGays Ponies’ Choice Awards! We’ve got nearly 50 awards to give out in five categories, and we want you to decide the winners!

Click here to cast your votes for the best in everything queer in Washington DC!

We’re looking for the best in community groups, neighborhoods, food & drink, art, going out, and of course, gettin’ laid. The nominations are totally open, but as some answers appear more frequently than others, we’ll add multiple choice options to make the data analysis easier on us. Think you’re LGBTQ DC’s best DJ, performance artist, drag queen, or hair stylist? Write your name in, and get your friends to vote for you too! We want this to represent the full range of new, queer, vibrant, and awesome DC! In a couple weeks, we’ll announce the winners!

We’re starting it out with just a write-in ballot, but as some nominees take the lead, we’ll add multiple choice options to make the vote counting easier. But for now, go wild – tell us what you think really deserves to be recognized as the best LGBTQ DC has to offer.

What are you waiting for? The polls are open – cast your vote now for the best in queer Washington DC!

This year has been so amazing – we can’t wait to celebrate all these bests and more with you in 2012. Now go out and win some golden pony statues.
