'A Literary Magazine for Queers and their Friends'
Born from a desire to create community during difficult times (read: 2020 et al), this is the wonderfully queer, silvery-sophomore edition of The Bittersweet Review.
Created as a physical, printed space for the advancement of queer literature and visual culture, their second issue is themed 'I Started a Joke' (yes, à la the Bee Gees song) and asks 'Is there something inherently queer about humour, or inherently humorous about queerness?'
With essays, short fiction, poetry, interviews, and original artwork (and beautiful design throughout) The Bittersweet Review continues to be a welcome addition to our shelves.
