What we're looking for: 18+ queer artists/writers/etc BASED IN SCOTLAND. innovative responses to the theme. we prioritise trans artists forever and always <33

Issue 3 will explore parties and clubs as a SPACE through queer perspectives- clubs r often quite gendered, or places where genders melt into each other. celebrate the physicality of the environment created by laughter, raised limbs, twinkling mesh and teeth, sweaty skin! be funny, earnest, horny. share anecdotes from your first gay club experience or missed connections. what runs through your head when you’re dancing, or is your mind totally & blissfully focused on your movements? make some gay ass art about it and send it our way

further insp: flirting, sensory experience and distortion, strangers and friends, alcohol/drugs/sobriety in the partyscape, club toilets (never forget our g*ndershit roots), clubwear, house parties, kink parties, drunk conversations

for this issue we are prioritising traditional media in our visual art submissions. bring your collage, messy monoprints, blurred film photos-show us the texture of queer partyscape through mixed media! we are particularly interested in reaching more photography and poetry + writing based contributors, so please share with anyone you know who may be interested!
