Homodachi and Friends is a zine for the English-speaking LGBT community (and their friends/allies) living in Japan. We are dedicated to archiving and documenting the LGBTQ experience, history, knowledge, and politics in all of its manifestations—whether it be literary, theoretical, poetic, or artistic in structure. We believe that by carving out space for these voices to be heard, we can create community and sustain it simultaneously. With a commitment to this mission statement, we offer our call for submissions for the second issue of Homodachi and Friends.
The theme for the second issue will be self-care and community sustainability.

Like, I can’t even talk about a genre of literature that was ghettoized because it was by women without also talking about men, too. It drives me insane.
