Queerspace Magazine is a voice for the queer community. We create some pretty fabulous arts and entertainment focused content, filtered through a queer, social justice lens.

We know that name comes with a responsibility, and it’s not something that we take lightly. It’s easy to throw a queer label on something these days, to make it sound edgy or cool, but that doesn’t mean it really is. So we question ourselves every time we make something new. Is it equitable? Is it just? Does it celebrate the humanity and uphold the dignity of people whose voices deserve to be heard, but aren’t? Does it help to subvert a system that has for too long upheld the values of one race, one gender, and one belief system over all others?

These days, of course, even just being queer can be an act of subversion. That’s why we’re doing something we think is important.

Queerspace Magazine acknowledges that we are on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish People past and present and honor with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe.
