"RADICAL SOFTNESS AS A BOUNDLESS FORM OF RESISTANCE" — GenderFail
"Here you were to be loved."  — James Baldwin
"We have to consciously study how to be tender with each other until it becomes a habit." Audre Lorde 

Calling our Queer/LGBTQIA family! We are looking for work that responds to all things SOFT. We accept poetry, prose, photography, and visual art. 

SOFT celebrates the revolutionary possibilities of determined kinship, radical kindness,  and unreserved tenderness defiantly affirming queer identities, subjectivity, and determination. In turn, offering new pathways for liberatory hope and futurity.
