Bilingual Review / La Revista Bilingüe invites submissions to a special issue on “Latinx LGBTQ+ Perspectives.” With this special issue, we hope to contribute to the emerging scholarship at the intersections of Latinx studies and LGBTQ+ studies. What does it mean to be both Latinx and LGBTQ+ in these times? How do individuals and groups experience their multiple identities? What is negotiated? What is a non-negotiable? We also encourage scholarly and creative responses to the recent anti-LGBTQ+, anti-Latinx tragedy in Orlando, Florida

•Latinx LGBTQ+ histories and archives
•Latinx LGBTQ+ aesthetics, poetics, or literary movements
•Transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary perspectives
•Undocumented perspectives on being LGBTQ+histories and archives
•Latinx social movements and LGBTQ+ social movements
•Representations of Latinx LGBTQ+ people in film
Submission Guidelines: Submissions may be in Spanish or English.
•Article submissions should be no more than 6,000 words in length, including notes and references, and adhere to the humanities or social sciences format appropriate to the contributor’s discipline (i.e., APA or MLA). Creative literary texts should be no more than 2,500 words and in any style the author chooses. Original photography and visual art welcome.  Authors are responsible for obtaining appropriate permissions for publication of artifacts (e.g., letters, photographs). In addition, authors of empirical submissions must state their work was approved by the appropriate Institutional Review Board of their institution.  Questions and abstracts for review are welcome before the final deadline.  FOR CONSIDERATION, PLEASE REGISTER/ENROLL AS AN AUTHOR AND UPLOAD YOUR ARTICLES (ACCOMPANIED BY AN ABSTRACT) AS A MICROSOFT WORD DOCUMENT TO THE JOURNAL’S WEBSITE:    BY SEPTEMBER 5, 2016.
