Yale Launches First Undergraduate LGBTQ Magazine


Q, Yale University's first LGBTQ magazine is set for release on campus tomorrow, December 3.

Its editor, Jake Conway, and publisher, Alice Song, both class of '11, write:

"Its mission is to serve as a guide to students on campus through the celebration of the queer experience. The feature of the first issue, 'We Are Yale,' is a compilation of personal essays from ten students representing the diversity and vibrancy of queer life at Yale. Other articles include: 'Cruising or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the cock,' an exposé of cruising culture at Yale; 'The Lowdown: Lesbian Sex,' a short essay demystifying lesbian sex with accompanying photo shoot; 'Undressing Jonathan Weinberg,' an interview with nude portraitist and Yale art critic Jonathan Weinberg ’78; and 'Missing Pages: The Diary of Albert Dodd, 1838,' a historical essay discussing bed sharing between Yale men in the nineteenth century."

The magazine is to be published once a semester, in a print run of 2,500 copies for distribution to the entire campus.

Conway says the magazine will have an online component next semester.
