Bil and I were IMing the other day about the usual stuff (boys, politics and social media) when we hit on a great idea: Same Sex Sunday 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

This will be a great way to connect and share info with other LGBT people. Same Sex Sunday begins this coming Sunday.

After the jump are the Twitter account of some of your favorite Bilerico contributors...

Great idea! It's worth looking at what can be learned from #women2follow (on Wednesdays), which has about a month of experimentation so far with a similar idea, and other hashtags. For example, it's worth thinking about to get enough critical mass to get the hashtag into the top 10. #rword did this turning a Twitter chat, where a dozen active chatters supplemented the steady stream on the hashtag. Not sure if that's the right answer for #samesexsunday right out of the box, but it's someting to keep in mind for the future.

but, but, but.... Sunday is for a fabulous brunch following a hard-grinding Saturday night. How does one tweet with one hand on a Bloody Mary or mimosa?


...perhaps the same way I've been tweeting with an IV in my arm?
