MAYDAY Magazine welcomes submissions for its Winter 2015, LGBTQ-themed edition to be guest edited by Amy King and Chase Dimock. We are looking for work from established and emerging voices in LGBTQ literature, including book reviews, interviews, lyric essays, short stories, flash fiction, memoir, reportage, scholarly articles, travel writing, and all forms and styles of poetry. This edition is especially interested in showcasing literature that engages with contemporary LGBTQ issues, politics, and philosophy from innovative and diverse perspectives. For our non-fiction articles, we seek essays that critically investigate concepts in LGBTQ Studies through prose that can speak to a broad literary audience without becoming mired in academic lingo.

This edited collection examines literary expressions of ethnic identity vis-à-vis cultural institutions, national affiliations, and comparative racializations. Taking Italian Canadian literature as a pivot and a point of departure, we also invite essays spanning several related multiethnic literary traditions.
