Each issue aims to show the diversity in our queer community, and how we all use art to express ourselves and tell our stories in our own unique way. Some of us may even use our talents to help capture stories of those around us, yet still being true to yourself as a storyteller and most importantly an artist.

FAQ

Is there a word limit to written submissions? 

No, we accept all lengths of written works as well as all creative and professional styles of writing. 

Do all submissions have to be gay influenced?

Yes, and No. Leur Magazine is an art magazine focused on queer identity and self-expression. We support all LGBTQIA+ artists that both use their sexuality at the forefront of their artwork, and those who identify on the spectrum, but have other direct themes and points of focus in their artworks. 

Do contributors get compensation for their published entries?

At the moment we are unable to pay contributors until we meet our advertising and production costs. Thank you for understanding. 

Why print? Why not just focus on digital?

We believe in the quality of art. With our focus on only providing two printed ( and digital ) issues a year, quality over quantity is key. We want to deliver a polished and uniform product to our audience to evoke a sense of professionalism and maturity that some may not expect from the creative queer community. At the same time, we are continuing to work on ways to grow and develop a strong digital presence to compliment our printed publication. 

Do you only publish art & culture?

Yes, we are an arts & culture magazine. Our social media and digital platforms will be more tailored to timely news, and current events. You can also get a general idea of the style of content we are looking for by viewing the shared stories from other LGBTQIA+ national magazines on our Facebook page

Are you hiring or have any internships available?

Unfortunately we do not have any positions for hire, nor do we have any internships. We are currently only available to host and accept volunteer-based support. If you or someone you know would be interested in helping out in any way, please have them email charlie@leurmagazine.com
