PLEASE FORWARD, THROUGHOUT THE GLOBE
This an invitation to submit to:
"in words: documents of personal struggles for Queer freedom"
In the last year we have seen the rise of Queer marriage, Queer civil rights, global pride, and acts of civil disobedience for and in the Queer community.
At the same time Queer activist have been murdered, jailed and silenced.
Though there are various points of oppression, from colonialist laws still in existence, legislation of separate - but equal, unimagined acts of homophobia, transphobia, AIDs/ HIV discrimination, xenophobia, racism, sexism, and misogamy; the struggle still continues; sometimes on a personal level, and at other times within the legal and legislative system.
For the most part the voices we hear are on news clips. It time for all the voices and all the words of personal acts of freedom to be heard.
If you identify as or with Queer, gay, trans, bisexual, lesbian, intersex, or just discriminated against in multiple systems of institutionalized oppressions, submit* your: notes, essays, interviews, letters, documents, rants, request for support, emergency action needs or poems** to: firstname.lastname@example.org
* Work may be in the body of the text, rft. or pdf.
** Final decision publication is based on the my personal ability of deal with all the submission and my intention to make it as diverse as possible.
