Wear Your Voice is an intersectional feminist magazine centering the voices of Black & brown queer women, femmes, trans & non binary people.
What are we looking for? If you want to write about pop-culture, news, sexuality, queer culture, gender, (mental) health, race, body politics, and more through an intersectional lens, then you’re at the right place! We are looking for nuanced and incisive critiques. Essays, listicles, Q&As and reported pieces are welcome and we accept pieces from new writers as much as we do seasoned writers.
Maintaining a safe space for marginalized people: Before pitching and while writing any drafts, be aware of ableist language, here is a useful resource for everyone, especially writers and editors. If your piece or pitch includes descriptions of violence and trauma, please include a trigger warning for our editors.
How to pitch: We only accept pitches, not complete drafts. If you are new to pitching, please answer the basics:
- What is your piece about?
- Why is it important?
- Who is it for?
- Why should YOU write it?
- Approximate deadline
Be sure to check out our site to make sure we haven’t already published a similar piece. If it is time-sensitive, please state it in the subject line. Please include your pronouns as well. If you have bylines/clips from other publications, include them in your email to submissions.
Pitches which are incomplete or lacking in detail may not receive a response and due to our current operating capacity, please give us one to two weeks for a response to your pitch — if it is time-sensitive, we’ll respond sooner.
