Issue 3: SoHo (Southern Homosexuals)
Edited by Hermelinda Cortes & Jon Henry
SLAG’s third edition focuses on the intersection of Queernes and Southern identities. We see this intersection as exploring themes related to identity, gender, desire, sexuality, rurality, migration, Southerness, farming, landscape, borders, anti-urbanism, and/or history. Artists do not need to be currently located in the South but should have some form of relationship and/or connection to the region. This connection could be memory, lived experience, love affair, family history. We recognize Southerness as a broad term that lacks borders but has strong centers in the American & Global South. We are looking for work that explores the intersections of queerness with the contexts of this physical/psycho geography.
Artists can submit up to 3 images with titles & dimensions. Text based work like short fiction & poetry is great. Open to anyone along the queer, race, geographic, professional, and gender spectrums. Artists are asked to submit a bio, up to 150 words.
