ourself zine: call for submissions 

The 1st issue of ourself zine interviewed queer lovers, friends, dating apps users, and more. For our 2nd issue, we will look at the theme of “family”. We are excited to invite collaboration and submissions from the Hong Kong queer community in response to the question - what does family mean to you as a queer person? You are welcome to submit a personal essay, letter, notebook fragments, or illustrations.

Submissions are open from now until 10 January 2022. We are looking for short pieces in any form (one poem // maximum 800-word prose // an illustration) as a part of this collaborative online project. Works in both Chinese and English are welcome. Selected works will be posted on ourself zine’s social media and archived on our newly launched website ( Anonymous submissions are also welcome. Some pieces will be selected for print.
