Dear Queer, 2022

This “Dear Queer” special folio is created to offer solidarity and hope to younger or just-coming-out LGBTIQ+ folks today. We asked writers to send poems or flash prose with the title, “Letter to my ______”. The blank could be anything relevant: younger self, former self, future family, unexpected ally, nemesis, dream self, fantasy self, unfurling self, beautiful kid, surprising elder, inner unicorn. Artists then responded.

We hope you’ll share this with the queer folks in your life, and with their families–-born-to or chosen.

We have also created lists of the queer writers and queer artists Broadsided has published, as well as broadsides focused specifically on LGBTIQ+ content.
