Issue 8 is here!
This hot pink stunner is here and we can’t wait for you to fall in love with these fourteen poems. This time around, we’ve got poets from the UK, US, Ireland, Trinidad, India, Germany and Mexico covering everything from gender, love, legacy, HIV discrimination, sex and more.
As always, some of our poets are award winning while others are brand new, never-before been published. There’s experimental work alongside more traditional forms; poems written about lived experience matched with more imagined moments. Of course, all fourteen deal with different aspects of modern queer life. We hope you love them all.
