Q* Anthology of Queer Culture is a student-run annual literary magazine and online platform that publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art related to LGBTQIA+ (or queer) culture. The magazine’s goals are twofold: to create a platform for a range of queer voices by offering authors and artists an outlet to share their opinions and ideas, and to promote dialogue on queer issues between the queer and non-queer communities. As the only student-run journal focusing on LGBTQIA+ culture at the University of Virginia, Q* gathers otherwise untold stories for the University community.


  1. Publish works related to queer culture at UVa, in Charlottesville, and beyond

  2. Create a platform for queer and allied authors and artists to express themselves

  3. Promote dialogue on queer issues both within the LGBTQIA+ community and between the queer and non-queer communities 

  4. Encourage intersectional representation and understandings of queer culture and identities.
