Djuna Barnes 

Although Polari celebrates writing that addresses sexuality, sex and gender, it is not confined by those themes. Polari endeavours to showcase emerging, developing and established writers as a means of bringing readers and writers together in mutually enriching ways. This is done in response to widespread neglect of LGBTIQ writing and the near total collapse of Gay and Lesbian publishing. All work appearing in Polari has been selected by a professional editorial committee and is peer-reviewed. Each issue consists of a mix of commissioned and other works that reflect the very best in LGBTIQ writing worldwide.
