Today is the kick off of Same Sex Sunday on Twitter. Same Sex Sunday is an idea hatched by me and Bil to build a stronger sense of LGBT community on Twitter.

The concept is pretty simple. Its #followfriday gone gay, gay, gay.

Each Sunday recommend LGBT people or organizations on Twitter that you think others should be following. Say a few words to describe the people/groups, link to their Twitter account and end with the hashtag #samesexsunday.

Example: Mad, bad and fabulous to know: @bilerico @jerame @buffawhat @bilericodc #samesexsunday

After the jump are some LGBT organizations that you should be following...

@NCLRights
@HRCBackstory
@AIDSAction
@ACLULGBT
@washingtonblade
@metroweekly
@bilericodc
@outmagazine
@theadvocatemag
@2009lgbtihealth
@malecenter
@couragecampaign

This is by no means an exhaustive list of LGBT groups and publications on Twitter. Please leave others in the comment section or better yet send the info out as part of Same Sex Sunday.

Hey Michael, thanks for today's #samesexsunday shout out. Was just reading up on it (great idea!) and wanted to suggest adding @glsen and @dayofsilence to your lgbt org/project list.

Best,
