Welcome to the online presence of Lesbian Quarterly, the BC magazine that’s unfashionably lesbian focussed. LQ is a magazine about lesbians — our achievements, our knowledge, our events and interests. LQ was published in print form and distributed in Vancouver from from 2004-2010 and is partially archived on this site and in the Arquives- Canada’s LGBTQ+ Archives
Editorial Guidelines: LQ is committed to building lesbian pride and visibility by showcasing the knowledge and achievements of BC women who describe themselves as lesbian, and to being 100% lesbian written. Intended audience is lesbian-identified women over 30. We love interviewing lesbians who wish to share professional or trade knowledge, who practice a visual or performing art, or who have their own business, so contact us using the email form below, we would be happy to include a link to your business in the article. Lesbian writers and artists who would like to contribute to LQ are also welcome.
To avoid disappointment it is recommended that you check out story ideas and angles with the editor first. The editor reserves the right to edit content, and to print or not print anything she wants.
A word about the ‘L-Word’: Dykes are debonair, bi’s are beautiful, queer women are quirky and gay women are gorgeous. LQ is unfashionably lesbian–focused, but welcomes readers with other choices and identities. LQ’s use of ‘lesbian’ includes all women who label themselves lesbian.
