GEP Postcard Push!

Want to write FOX but daunted by the prospect of composing a letter? Have you thought about sending a postcard instead? Quick and easy, with just enough room to ask for one crucial change next season, talk about the issue that matters most or explain what you love in the show and would like more of. Pop on FOX’s address and your return address, and you’re done!

Print our HQ GEP campaign designs, sized to fit a standard 5” by 3.5” postcard:

When the FOX network adds up the number of people who’ve written them about equality issues on Glee, your postcard *will* count. You can get friends, family & fellow real life Gleeks to fill one in too!

LOOK OUT FOR MORE GEP POSTCARDS AFTER COMIC CON!

I'm about to send my letter to Fox. Then I realised that I probably can't put my address, because we're in the middle of rebuilding our house, so we're short-term renting. It's complicated. Is it OK that I don't put my address? I have got my name, phone and email address though.

Recommend you use the address of your usual residence, the one that’s being rebuilt. There’s almost zero chance FOX will respond to your letter [it is not in their interests to do so!], but it’s important to establish your bona fides as an actual, verifiable real life individual. Hope that helps. And don’t forget a one-sentence summary of your main points at the top of your letter! Thanks so much for writing :)

Hints of the Hiatus: 2. Write FOX

Make your voice heard by writing a simple letter explaining your concerns about LGBT portrayal on Glee and/or what moments of LGBT equality drew you to Glee. We can help you plan, write and edit your letters and even translate them and help you send them if you are an International fan or can’t send a letter yourself! Or you could send a postcard!

Have you written your letter?

A Holiday Hiatus for the GEP

We, at the GEP, want to thank all you supporters for such a great response. It has been great to see so many of you energized, equipped and ready to question FOX about the LGBT issues in Glee that matter to you. So thank you!

As it is a major US holiday, we’ll be taking a brief hiatus (briefer than Glee’s hiatuses!) with a more minimal posting schedule. We have some great content planned for after the holidays and there will be news about Comic Con for which to watch out too.

In the meantime, make sure you’ve sent your letter to FOX or made that call. Or both! Remember- it doesn’t have to be long (brief, heartfelt and personal is much better). Over our Holiday Hiatus, we’ll still re-blog some of the letters we’ve seen and loved so why not blog your letter and tag it #GEP or #Glee Equality Project?

We’d also love to hear your favourite LGBT moments on Glee. Head over to Facebook and let us (and FOX) know the parts that have worked for you.

Have a great holiday, US supporters, and we’ll see you all on Monday!

Email the GEP your letter to print & mail!

Sending an email to FOX is a waste of your time - and a waste of what could have been a valuable individual letter FOX would have had to count and keep. We want everyone’s voice to be heard by FOX, not go into a black hole.

But if you’re still more comfortable expressing yourself in an email, please send your email to gepletters@gmail.com Include your full name and postal address, and we’ll print and mail to FOX for you. The email doesn’t have to be a mile long; just from the heart. The service is confidential.

We have a lot of experience campaigning. To guarantee that your letter counts, pop a one sentence summary at the top. E.g. Glee: Brittana lack of dialogue; Klaine lack of PDA. Even if no more is read, it will get to the right department and count in the right place.

Can I use that letter as a template for my own? Just copy one or two paragraphs but rephrase them? :)

Use the talking points we posted and the heartfelt letters the amazing fans are sharing with us to spark your own ideas. It is so, so important that you write FOX in your own words. Your letter doesn’t have to be a mile long: just honest. Thanks so much for writing!

I'm sending a letter internationally. Do I put my address on the letter/envelope anywhere? :)
Anonymous

It’s always a great idea to put your return address on the back of the envelope. If the airmail envelope doesn’t impress the FOX employee right away, that international address will do the job. We’re trying to make ourselves real to FOX as well as making our voices heard and a fan caring that much about their show they’ll write from overseas? It’s a really big deal.
