GayCities is currently doing two huge, awesome, fun promotions in conjuction with Pride, and I want you guys to participate and get a bunch of cool prizes.

Do you live in San Francisco or plan to visit this June? We’ve selected 49 hotspots all over town that make us proud to live in the gay mecca. Some of my favorites made the list: El Rio, Public Works, Dolores Park, the GLBT History Museum, Good Vibrations, Four Barrel, and SF MOMA.

Check-in to any of these venues to unlock instant prizes like free drinks, dinner certificates, VIP passes to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the De Young, tickets to Frameline film screenings, free cover at Trannyshack and other cool swag. One lucky winner will win a trip back to San Francisco! All you have to do is fire up your smart phone and check-in using the GayCities mobile app or connect your check-ins via Facebook or Foursquare.

For those of you living elsewhere but getting ready to take part in your hometown Pride, you can be our unofficial photographer by submitting your best pictures. Every Pride photo you submit gives you another chance to win a free trip anywhere in the country. Our friends at JetBlue are hooking us up with free airfare and Kimpton is dishing out a free hotel stay and dinner.

So this Pride season, thanks to GayCities, every mobile check-in and every photo taken during Pride can send you on a gay getaway, (almost) all expenses paid!
