AT&T celebrates Pride Month with its third Live Proud campaign

Posted on 03 Jun 2015 at 11:02am

AT&TAT&T wants everyone living openly to share their stories by creating their own 15-second “This is Me” video to tell the world how they live proud every day.

Submit your video here to enter the AT&T “This is Me” Sweepstakes. Four participants will be selected at random to win a trip for two to New York City and tickets to OUT100.

To help spread awareness of the campaign, share your video entry on your social media channels and include #ATTLiveProud. And like the AT&T Live Proud Facebook page to join us in celebrating LGBT community awareness, empowerment and pride.
