The feminist/LGBTQ zine publishers at Toronto’s House Hippo Press are looking for submissions from gay, bisexual, queer, two-spirited, genderqueer or trans women for the second issue of I Like Girls. The second issue’s theme is coming out. In the words of the editors, your piece can answer questions like: “What does coming out mean to you? What experiences in your life do you reflect on as your ‘defining’ coming out moments? Who was the first person you told — and how did they take it? Do you have any regrets?” Essays, poetry, short stories, photos and illustration are all good (no academic work, please.) Deadline for submissions is Monday September 30. For complete guidelines visit the House Hippo Press website.
