Now Accepting Submissions!

We are now accepting submissions for our next volume of the Harvard Kennedy School’s LGBTQ Policy Journal, which will be published on a rolling basis throughout this spring. We welcome completed pieces from people with a wide range backgrounds who are interested in contributing to the discussion of policies that impact LGBTQ people. We are actively encouraging submissions from all people – community members, activists, academics, students from any institutions. Submissions should be completed, but don’t worry about having a polished draft — that is what the editing process is for!

Submissions may take the form of research, reviews, interviews or dialogues, recounting of lived experience connected to LGBTQ policy, retelling of advocacy efforts surrounding policy change, and/or art and other personal expression. Topics can cover issues in the United States, in other countries, or globally.

Potential formats include:
– Policy analyses and recommendations aimed at a broad audience
– Op-eds / opinion pieces (including cultural criticism and commentary
– Personal narrative articles
– Interviews with scholars, community leaders, students, activists, or political actors
– Creative content such as poems, photo essays, illustrations, artwork, etc.

The submission form can be found here. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, so please submit as early as possible. This will ensure that we will have more editors available to work with you! You should hear back as to whether you piece is accepted within a week of submission. We will then provide next steps.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us as We’re looking forward to seeing your submissions!
