This anthology seeks to explore positively or negatively how being raised Catholic informs our queerness and how our queerness affects our Catholicism. We are not interested in essays exploring whether or not queers and the Catholic church can co-exist together or how and why the church should change, but instead would like to explore the impact growing up Catholic and queer has on us as individuals, writers, and political agents. We are really more interested in the culture of Catholicism rather than the dogma or letter of it. Tell us about it from your heart, not your head.
Personal essays, narrative prose, and creative nonfiction preferred.
Previously unpublished work only.
