We’re a zine dedicated to queering assumptions about death, dying & mourning. We care about queer bonds & unsettling norms. We do art, essays, poems, photos, interviews, experiments, obituaries, ideas & trash. Give us what you’ve got for our first edition.

Not sure where to start? Think of 'queering' as tool to ask difficult and trangressive questions and to centre queer lives, communities and contexts.

Your contribution might be asking questions about, for example, whose lives are treated as valuable (think black lives matter) or how living matter actually decomposes? It might be challenging ideas about the 'right' time to die or the 'right' way to grieve a death of someone or something. It might be commemorating the loss of loved ones and asking what death means for inter-species relationships and ecological systems. It might be tackling sexism and racism in the provision of palliative care or in funeral services. It might be sharing different ideas about an after or eternal life. It might be all these things and more.

We want to know what matters to you.

We want to be surprised and moved.

Please use the submission form to send us what you've got as either an image, word doc or pdf.

We'd love to know a bit more about your contribution and you, so please provide this information.

We're DiY, non-profit & volunteer but we do offer £25 for 4 contributions by BIPOC.

Not sure it's a fit? Contact us & ask.
