Plenitude Magazine aims to promote the growth and development of LGBTTQI literature and film through a biannual electronic publication (e-reader and tablet formats) of literary fiction, nonfiction, poetry, graphic narrative and short film by both emerging and established LGBTTQI writers, filmmakers, and artists, and to foster a community through an online forum for the exchange of ideas, opportunities, contacts, and resources. Our view of queerness centres Black and Indigenous people, people of colour, trans people, people with disabilities, youth, and elders.
We define queer literature and film as that which is created by LGBTTQI people, rather than that which features queer content alone. That said, we recognise that Plenitude readers are hungry for exceptional works that reflect queer histories, cultures, experiences, and sensibilities. We respond to this need by making issue content searchable through keywords. Our editorial process involves critical literary analyses, as well as socio-historical considerations, sometimes turning to an advisory editorial board of writers, academics, and community advocates.
Plenitude aims to complicate expressions of queerness through the publication of diverse, sophisticated literary writing, art and film, from the very subtle to the brash and unrelenting.
