Vote for the Best
by Cynthia Laird
The Bay Area Reporter's Best of the Gays contest is back and better than ever. Voting starts today (Thursday, January 31) and continues through March 4.
The results of the popular poll for the best of LGBT offerings will be published in the paper's anniversary issue April 4.
This year's third annual Best of the Gays readers poll is revamped and the online ballot is more user-friendly, utilizing Survey Monkey. The categories have been reorganized, including new entries like Best LGBT Nonprofit, best LGBT Activist Under 25, and Best Bang For Your Buck Bar. There are also returning favorites like Best Dance Company, Best DJ, and Best Local Politician You Love to Hate.
In addition, the contest is stretching to the East Bay this year, with some fun categories, including Best Reason to Cross the Bay Bridge.
There's a ballot on the back page of this week's arts section. Readers can also access the survey through the paper's website (ebar.com), Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/LGBTSF?ref=ts&fref=ts), download the pdf ballot at www.ebar.com/downloads/BOTG_2013Poll.pdf, or take the survey online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BAR2013. Those who complete the survey are entered for a chance to win fabulous prizes, including lodging on Maui and San Francisco Giants tickets.
