Issue #25 – Queer Spaces


The queer identity is multitudinous and multifaceted. Despite the strong sense of unity we share, wherever it is that we go, being queer in one place is going to be different than being queer in another—often times, vastly so. As such, the individual delivers to the world an identity that is comprised simultaneously of sexual and geographic orientation. We as a community embody what it means to be African and transsexual, Alabamian and bisexual, Russian and lesbian, Californian and asexual, Iranian and gay.

Whichever letter of the queer alphabet you ascribe to, that identity is worth expressing in a manner that does not separate you from the culture that you belong to, but rather reveals the complicated relationship between exterior and interior place. The world needs to know us as we really are, not as we are stereotypically perceived to be. In this issue, we invite works that deliver a sense of the relationship that exists between queer person and place.

The topics of your work do not have to be queer in theme, but we do ask that you as a contributor belong to the queer community. Also, if you would rather be published anonymously, please specify and we will be happy to keep your name private.

Submissions due 12/9/17. Guest Editor Alesha Dawson. Issue live 1/31/18.
