If you need further prompts: growing up online, online queer awakenings, liminality/intersection between cyberspace n meatspace, grindr/dating apps, nudes and sexting, political organising, online/offline queer communities differences, the internet as a “queer” “space”, queer websites that made an impression on you, intimacy on the internet, experimenting with gender/sexuality online.

the zine will be A5, but your submission doesnt have to be. we might have to edit your submission to fit the format when we’re putting it all together!
Note: for this issue, we’re anticipating a lot more submissions as we have a bigger reach now! Depending on how many submissions we get, we might not be able to print everyone’s. We have space for about 20 or so pieces in the printed version. However, we will release a pay what you can extended digital version with everyone’s submissions viewable :)
All profits go to local trans ppl’s fundraisers. We’re not making any money from this! Contributors in the print and digital versions will receive a free copy of the physical and digital zines, and digital contributors will receive the digital copies.
