Deadline Extended! (You're welcome.) This is your last chance to submit your work to WUSSY Volume 2: The Fight Issue

This quarterly print rag is heavy on visuals, with the same biting and resonant WUSSY voice that you're used to. We were overwhelmed by the volume and sheer quality of the work that was submitted for our inaugural issue, and we can’t wait to see what you’ve got next!

Queerdos of the Southeastern US - send us your work!



Our second issue will be “The Fight Issue.” We all FIGHT in our own way to be heard, to make change, or to make noise. Do you fight to survive? Do you fight for access? Are you a local activist and community organizer who wants to be heard? We want to highlight the entire spectrum of queer political efficacy from balaclavas to grassroots campaigns. Still, even if you’re not in the public eye, you make a statement everyday; we want to know how you FIGHT.


What Are We Looking For?

Opinion pieces, works of non-fiction, short fiction, break-up stories, photo essays, illustrations, nudies, comics, interviews, original and thoughtful pieces.

All work must not have been published anywhere else online or in print.
