QWOC Media Wire seeks submissions from queer women, trans people, and gender non-conforming people of color who inhabit multiple “in between spaces.” We’re offering you a space to talk about how you navigate “life in the gray,” and how the experiences of these multiple identities converge or share territory.
We are open to original visual art, poetry, music, and mixed media)*, but we’re particularly interested in personal narratives/essays, creative non-fiction, social commentary submissions in the following categories:
- Romantic Relationships
- (Bio and Chosen) Family experiences
- Single-Issue Identity Politics and Community Organizing
- Creating Community with Other “In-Betweeners”
- Diaspora Borderlands; Geograpny and Migration (queer folk who grapple with “life in the gray” across cultures and continents)
- “In Betweener” Odes, Homage, and Manifestos: Ideal for rants, “truth” prose, interviews with notable leaders that inspire or historical icons.
This call for submissions will culminate in a special editorial series to be released in June 2013.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS APRIL 30TH, 2013.

” The Gringo, locked into the fiction of white superiority, seized complete political power, stripping Indians and Mexicans of their land while their feet were still rooted in it. Con el destierro y el exilo fumimos desunados, destroncados, destripados- we were jerked out by the roots, truncated, disemboweled, dispossessed, and separated from our identity and our history.”
- Gloria Anzaldua
However, this crime is not Rios Montt’s, alone. The genocide would have been impossible without the United States, which had run the show in Guatemala since 1954 and had armed the general to the teeth. The U.S. corporate media like to call President Ronald Reagan the “Great Communicator” but, in Guatemala, he was the Great Exterminator, encouraging and financing General Rios Montt’s orgy of mass murder. Reagan described the racist butcher as “a man of great personal integrity and commitment” who was “getting a bum rap.” All told, a quarter million or more Guatemalans died in the 40 years since the CIA robbed them of their democracy and independence.
