Send a new batch of postcards every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!
We are doing this not only to keep ground-breaking gay supercouple Kyle and Oliver on "One Life to Live", but also in support of gay representation in the media in general. We would like ABC Daytime to continue to strive for diversity and equality in their programming.

Media Contact Information

Let's spread this story! Take a second to shoot an email to these media outlets. Easy-to-copy list after the jump:

To hit them all at once, just paste this list into the BCC field of your email. Your subject line should be short and catchy. Keep the email concise, make it clear, and make it something that the reporter has to write about, so be passionate and informative. Thanks to lasvegastony and bittersweetlily at Kishmet:

Detailed version:
From the wonderful Bittersweetlily at Kishmet:

"So after parsing through some info I got yesterday, I have put together what I think is a pretty terrific starting off point for media contact, with newspapers, trades, and wire services. I have confirmed that each of these reporters/editors are current to their staffs so there should be no bounceback messages.

As a suggestion (from someone who gets tons of pitches each day), keep your subject line short (under 10 words) but informative and grabby. In your email message, tell the reporter/editor why this story is important to you and, most importantly, why it is necessary for that reporter to write about it and for their readers to know about it.

Keep the email concise, make it clear, and make it something that the reporter has to write about, so be passionate and informative.

So without further ado...
