The theme for this month’s Bi Women Quarterly is “Violence & Recovery.” Read it here.
On theme, we present poetry by Courtney Carola, Rae Frame, and Casey Lawrence; prose by LB Klein, Theresa Tyree, Lila Hertelius, Christie Sessa, and Apphia K.; a painting by Jo-Anne Carlson; and a powerful comic by Why Not Both Co.
Mindful of the subject matter, we also include within this issue resources for support. If this topic is personally relevant to you, we sincerely hope that you will use them.
We also offer our usual staples: Advice from A Rose Bi and our Calendar. In our Around the World column, you will meet Valerie Baud, in Paris, France.
And at long last, we bring back our Research Corner under the joint stewardship of Renate Baumgartner in Vienna, Austria, and Iranian activist Soudeh Rah, who is living in France.
We hope that you have a good experience reading this issue, and that you will share it with others.
Please keep in mind that we offer free electronic subscriptions to anyone who would like one. Please help us spread the word!
And finally, please keep in mind that – in addition to the thousands of electronic subscriptions that we send out to people like you – we also mail print copies of BWQ to more than 500 LGBTQ+ groups and women’s centers around the United States, and to a few in other countries. Printing, postage, envelopes, our Post Office Box, InDesign and Photoshop, website hosting, interns (as we can afford to hire them) – and even the service we used to send this email to you – all cost $$. If you are able, please consider supporting our work with a donation. Find out morehere.
All best wishes,
Robyn Ochs, Editor
