Call for Submissions for bluestockings issue six
The Stonewall Riots were started by queer and trans women of color: Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson. #BlackLivesMatter was coined by three Black women, two of whom are queer.
These histories, however, have been erased and misrepresented. We recognize that resistances by those at the intersections of queer and trans communities and communities of color have not only existed, but endured, throughout time. At the present moment, the numbers of trans deaths (especially trans women of color) are rising while this violence is systematically and repeatedly denied by the mainstream media and the state. The foregrounding of these resistances becomes incredibly vital.
These narratives—the ones most in danger of erasure—are the ones bluestockings has a responsibility to remember and honor. Because of this, our sixth print issue will be dedicated to amplifying the stories, voices, and perspectives of people in queer and trans communities of color. Please submit to bluestockingsmag.com by Monday, November 2nd, for a chance to be published in our print issue six.
