Yesterday afternoon, the Readers Voice Awards website went online, which gives you, dear readers, nearly a month to speak out about what matters to you! That means you get to vote for your favorite dining spots, shopping destinations, community leaders, barbers, doctors, Realtors, airlines … all the stuff that makes your life easier or better as a gay Texan. And when you speak, we listen.

The best part? Well, actually there are two. First, you can vote for one of nine images (above) to be our cover when the Readers Voice Awards issue comes out in March … and give one lucky photographer’s charity $1,000 prize. Second, you get a chance at a prize of your own when you vote. Someone wins two round-trip tickets on American to most of North America and the Caribbean just by voting… and you get to see some great photos, too. So vote now!
