Seeking Real Queer Sex stories

I am launching a new zine project in which I will illustrate true stories of queer sex. (I am using the broad definition of queer as non-hetronomative and/or non-binary)

My ethos of inclusivity, sensitivity and honesty will be applied to Real Queer Sex, I want to represent the range of forms queer sex can take and the range of people who engage in it of every age, gender identity, sexuality, shape, size, race…

No story is too short or long to share, or too “vanilla” or kinky…

Thank you!

If you would like to submit a story please go to www.realqueersex.tumblr.com

If you would like to find out more about me www.theoysterknife.co.uk

By submitting your story you agree that it might be quoted, illustrated and published in my book titled “Real Queer Sex”.

Wagonburners is a 'zine about the environmental battle being waged against Indian Country by unscrupulous corporations and private individuals. We welcome submissions from all of our associates (allies is played out), particularly from the LGBTIQA+ community.

Please contact Wagonburners via our homepage, HOWEVER, this is not a project that will focus on Native traditions, spirituality or the like. Any serious submission heeding these guidelines will be considered.

Seems pretty quiet. Is it always this quiet?

Hey friends! I recently posted a blog post about my zine and my connection to the zine community. I also put a bunch of my zines up on my etsy shop. I'd love it if you could check them out! <3

Everywhere All The Time #2: Bright Sunny Days, Dark Sacred Nights is the second issue of my travel media zine featuring stories from a year spent traveling and living in Ecuador. From hiking in the northern highlands to a shack on the Pacific coast, the zine spans terrain, time and mood through text and black and white photos. The writing is influenced by my identities – queer, mestiza, POC, feminist, writer, weirdo – and is cut by quotes from Junot Díaz, Gloria Anzaldúa and James Baldwin. 36 pages, typewritten/handwritten and some computer writing, black and white with color cover. Order (on Etsy) here!

My range of vagina patches, drawn from real life, no porn star pussies here!

SUBMIT to Passage & Place: on the intersection of queerness, home & movement

**PLEASE FORWARD this call**

**also, find it on Facebook**

 

PASSAGE & PLACE Print Project

Call for submissions:

The concept of Home is often defined by one's relationship to place- one's connection to, or displacement from, a geographical or structural location. In thinking about diaspora, a person's Home may be a place they have never physically been- it may be less of a physical place and more of a conceptual one. When considering chosen and forced im/emigration, incarceration, or territories occupied by military force, one's concept of Home may not simply be defined by a single static place- or by place at all. In the context of queer identities, many of us who have chosen to disengage, or have been disowned from our families of origin, define Home through our interpersonal relationships to chosen family and community.

Some of us may associate particular people in our lives with a sense of Home. For some of us, Home may be laden in the sight of an object, a smell, a sound, a phrase. One's concept of Home may be best conjured up by the act of movement, the practice of tradition, or the retelling of significant events.

What is it that signifies Home to you? Consider drafting a letter to that place/person/object/etc.

Imagine being able to communicate with Home directly-- what would you say? What is your relationship to each other at this point in time? Has it changed? If so, in what ways? What lies in the space between you and Home?

This is a call for letters written, and visual art created from You to Home. A collection of these letters and images will be bound and printed into an anthology released in conjunction with the National Queer Arts Festival, 2014.

Final deadline to submit work is 5pm on March 1st, 2014.

**PLEASE FORWARD this call**



EMAIL SUBMISSIONS to passageandplace@gmail.com

MAIL SUBMISSIONS (we ♥ letters!) to:
Passage & Place
PO Box 22469
Oakland CA 94609

Submissions will not be returned, so please don't send originals. Along with your submission, please include a 2-3 line bio about yourself, as well as contact information.

Letters should be kept to 1,000 words or less. Visual art should be formatted to 6"x9" or "9x12". Scanned images should be 300dpi.

Selected letters and visual art will be displayed during the PASSAGE & PLACE exhibition in June 2014.

Contributors selected for print will receive a copy of the printed anthology.
