About
Th-Ink Queerly
Th-ink Queerly is a LGBTQ+ magazine that demonstrates our vital role in society to improve humanity and equal rights for all. We critique the status quo and offer solutions to create a more loving and accepting world.
Note from the editor

Th-ink Queerly’s roots are grounded in self-examination and personal growth. As LGBTQ+ people we harness our self-awareness to demonstrate our necessary role in society. We promote thoughtful dialogue that seeks to improve humanity and equal rights for all. We critique the status quo — challenging rigid doctrines, heteronormativity, patriarchy, bigotry, and radicalized ideologies — and offer solutions to create a more loving and accepting world. If you would like to write for Th-Ink Queerly, please review our “Submission” guidelines (link on the homepage).
