Gay, bisexual, pansexual, questioning, single, in any sort of relationship, we’re looking for you.
From time to time, we get notes from readers that we’re lacking in stories from gay men, to gay men, about relationships, dating, dealing with expectations and assumptions, personal experiences and history, confronting anti-gay attitudes, navigating family relationships.
Whether you personally agree with that is up to you.
But we would like to have more gay/bi/pansexual voices, including men who are questioning what their sexuality is, or even if they want to label it. Speak up, gents!*
Yes, many struggles cross gay-straight lines, and a lot of advice is applicable regardless of a person’s or couple’s gender(s). And while we’ve been lucky to have some amazing contributors, there’s always room for more.
The floor is open, but particular topics of interest are:
Dating; maintaining relationships (past & present); being out on the job; navigating marriage and divorce; what “gay” looks like or means now; social justice/activism; handling bullying/harassment; when you meet/don’t meet expectations/stereotypes.
You don’t have to be a writer…we can help you get your words in order. And if you’ve something you’d like to say but aren’t quite sure where to go with it, we can help get you going.
Send your finished articles (400-1,200-ish words), pitches, and ideas to [email protected] No explicit sexual content, no derogatory/hate speech, and please give it a proofread and spellcheck. We can’t guarantee we’ll publish all submissions, but we want to see what you’ve got to say.
*Gents: If you ID as male, great. We don’t gender-police. Also, asexual, greysexual, demisexual, others on the spectrum welcome as well.
