A new journal is calling for submissions from writers and artists about black queer bodies, women’s health, the house ball scene & HIV/AIDS, and the impact of HIV/AIDS on cultural production in the black LGBT community. The editors are interested in submissions that re-imagine how HIV/AIDS affects gays, lesbians, as well as bisexuals and trans men and women. They are looking for work that “enters the conversation of disease and illness in thoughtful, non-judgmental, and provocative ways”.
The new journal, called NOW, will host fiction, non-fiction, short stories, essays, articles, interviews, poetry and graphic art (B&W photographs, art work).
NOW is a project of Aids Project Los Angeles (APLA). APLA was started in 1983 to provide services to people living with HIV/AIDS including housing, dental, food security, counselling, and prevention education.
Deadline for submissions: July 31, 2007.
