We can’t wait for you to read our latest issue, in all its peachy glory. As always, we’ve found the 14 most exciting queer poets in the world. And this issue has - unintentionally - a loose theme of connection. Whether lamenting the dearth of lesbian bars, a longing for lost cruising hook ups during the pandemic or celebrating a citizenship ceremony that brings an international couple together.

As always, our poets are a mix of new writers and established, including some who are nominees for the Lambda Literary poetry prize, Kenyon Review Prize winners and recipients of the Academy of American Poets Prize. They’ve been published in exciting and mainstream publications, including The Paris Review, The Volta, Stone of Madness, The Rialto, Ambit, Impossible Archteype and Poetry.

This issue brings the varied and fascinating world of LGBTQ+ to life. We can’t wait for you to read it.
