Call for submissions: Rainbow Renegades zine

strange things? Collective are working in partnership with Rainbow Renegades, a local LGBTQI+ group for young people, and we want to hear from you.

We are gathering the experiences of what it's like to be a young LGBTQI+ person in our community today. You can submit anything, but if you're stuck, maybe have a think about:

  • What would you like to change?

  • What would you like professionals/teachers/other young people to know?

We are looking for any creative work you might want to submit, whether that's artwork, creative writing, photography or anything else - but if you don't consider yourself a very artistic person, that's fine too. It's your voice that matters, and we will work with you to best capture that, in whatever way is most comfortable. The submissions will form a creative booklet called a zine, which we will then print. You can also choose to submit anonymously.

To contribute, we ask that you:

  • identify as part of the LGBTQI+ community

  • are 11-25 years old

  • are from tyne and wear or the surrounding area.

We are gathering work until Friday 29th October.
