Small communities can be fertile for drama. And the ethics of privacy and disclosure around relationships is complicated – further complicated by the politicised context of marginalised communities.
A few partners of trans guys have voiced concerns about submitting to DUDE when they know that the magazine will be circulated among their community. But sometimes the stories that are hardest to tell are the ones we most need to hear.
So for DUDE 3 we’re welcoming submissions of anonymous fragments – for little snapshots that would be difficult to develop into a whole article or story without giving too much away.
Some topics you might want to explore:
- subcultural hierarchies
- awkward sex stories
- scene drama
- political controversy
- trans guys being jerks
Put “DUDE #3 SUBMISSION: FRAGMENT” into the subject line and email to DUDEmag.special(at)gmail.com
Remember you can send any type of submission anonymously or under a pseudonym, and we also take fiction submissions. Full submission guidelines here.
