It’s time for me to stop prevaricating and get something out there!
The first Call for Submissions to ‘Obscured’ is now announced – if you prefer the full document you can download/read it here.
Behind the Mask
Since we took to wearing furs and created language, humanity has chosen to ‘cover up’ and so obscure itself. Not only a physical act – we often obscure true thoughts, beliefs and actions for a variety of reasons.
Due to their difference, persecution and lack of acceptance people who found themselves to be gay have had more reasons than others to obscure themselves.
Obscured is a new irregular zine-type publication – combined with an associated website platform – which will issue a series of calls for submission of themes around the broader one – how gay people have obscured themselves in the past and how we still feel the need to obscure today.
Obscured has been created to provide a new space for gay artists to share their works and provide an outlet for discussion around our identified themes.

Update: Deadline extended to 31 August 2014.
