The listings below are literary magazines/journals that specifically focus on the artists and writers in the LGBTQ+ community. There are many other literary magazines that support LGBTQ+ contributors. For a more general list of all-inclusive/feminist lit mags, check out my list here: Feminist Lit Mags and Journals.
These literary magazines/journals are listed alphabetically; some are currently accepting submissions, some are temporarily closed. I’ve also included whether or not it is a paying market in the notes column. These lit mags/journals also fit the following criteria:
- Generally do not charge fees to submit (although some may charge fees for some types of submissions and for contests).
- They accept poetry submissions.
- All accept electronic submissions.
If you have suggestions for lit mags/journals I’ve missed, please contact me here or leave a comment below.
