@Godhatesshane, probably like the end of July? I want to get it published no later than August but I still have to buy the software and do some logistics stuff so I'll keep submission time open until July 31.

I know you've probably already decide on Queer As In F You officially (since, you know, Twitter and whatnot), but I just wanted to say that I love that! I actually very recently read an article by a friend of mine with the same title, and it was all about the academic meaning of the word "queer" and how it's not a catch-all for LGBT+ people but for people who are specifically redefining society simply by the way they live and present themselves - basically, "queer," in academic circles, is basically a big "F you" to society.

Also, re: concerns about the f-word turning off some readers - I'm guessing most people who are interested in a queer punk zine are probably okay with swearwords, especially if they're familiar with the quote that inspired the title. I also think this title, more than any other suggested, really says "this is a queer punk zine" and gives people a clear idea of what they're looking at before they dive in - which is really what a good title should do, especially for a magazine or journal.

@BlueAfrica re: the f-word in the title
I've come to that conclusion as well; just thought I'd point it out. :)

I just looked at some of the website, and it really does look beautiful! I'm incredibly impressed by how much work you've already put into it, even though I've mostly been watching from afar up until now.
