WMN is a Publication of Lesbian Art and Poetry

WMN is a publication featuring underrepresented and marginalized lesbian artists and poets founded by Jeanette Spicer, Florencia Alvarado and Sara Duell. Each issue features work by lesbians who historically do not get much representation within LGBTQIA+ media. This includes lesbians living rurally or outside the American urban metropolitan cities, dykes fifty-five and above, lesbians identifying as disabled and/or are living with a physical, sensory, cognitive, or chronic illness, and lesbians with experience of migration. Our fifth and most recent issue showcases lesbians who are trans, gender non-binary and/or non-conforming.
