Matthew here. I've just started up a new queer lit journal--EDUCE. It came from a couple of different experiences:

1. The need. As far as I could tell, the last good queer journals have gone to the wayside.

2. While there is a place for everything, so much of the fiction that is being published in the gay genre is pulp, romance, erotica and fluff. I wanted to find and present gay literature.

I'm happy to report that there are is plenty of gay literature out there. The call for submissions yielded hundreds of responses.

With the first issue due out in March of 2012, I am wondering: Are gay men ready/wanting gay literature?
