Plenitude Magazine aims to promote the growth and development of LGBTQ2S+ literature and film through the regular online publication of literary fiction, nonfiction, poetry, graphic narrative and short film by both emerging and established LGBTQ2S+ 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 LGBTQ2S+ people, rather than that which features queer content alone. That said, we recognize 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.
