Issue 003: On Intimacy
Issue 003 expands the definition of intimacy, and explores how intersecting identities shape the way we experience intimacy in our lives.
We’re interested in how you address the following (and beyond) in your work:
How you define and express intimacy
How you experience intimacy across various relationships -- romantic, platonic, familial and self
The relationship between intimacy and sexual expression
The ways in which intimacy brings you joy and fulfillment
What it means for you to feel safe to share intimacy with another person
How intimacy has been a site of trauma in your life
The commodification of intimacy
The role culture, faith, sexuality, gender expression, ethnicity, ability, physicality, etc. play in your experience with and expression of intimacy
Please read the following guidelines on the submission process before submitting your work to us via Google Form
