In the wake of the tragedy at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, many in the literary community have responded with works honoring the LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual) community. Read one of these powerful pieces, by Roy G. Guzmán, here. Several journals are hosting themed or special issues to give writers in this community a platform from which to share their stories, reactions, and experiences.
Boston Accent Lit has compiled the following list of publications that we believe are making great efforts to spotlight voices of those who are too often silenced. Major props to all of the wonderful artists, writers, and editors who are behind these journals, and to their brave and talented contributors.
Badass JOURNALS & RESOURCES:
This list is far from comprehensive, and we encourage you to submit your favorite LGBTQIA-supporting journal or writing resource to be added. We would also love to hear from you and read your creative work. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also remember, as artist Niki Smith has adopted as her personal motto: "Life is beautiful!" And so are you.
