Proposal Submissions Deadline: October 28, 2011
The LGBTQ Policy Journal of the Harvard Kennedy School is a student-run, nonpartisan review dedicated to publishing interdisciplinary work on policy-making and politics including and impacting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) communities and individuals. We strive to improve the quality of public policies affecting LGBTQ communities by furthering reflection and debate on the complex economic, political, and social consequences of public policy regimes for LGBTQ persons.
We are currently accepting submissions for our second print volume, which will be published this Spring 2012. Our online edition is updated throughout the academic year, and submissions can be sent at any time. The first print edition, available for purchase online, included essays and opinion pieces from prestigious individuals in government, academics and community advocates. For the online edition of the Journal, we are accepting interview transcripts, photo essays or videos, as well as articles or commentaries that are shorter than the print edition requirements. Submissions for the online edition are accepted on a rolling basis and may be submitted and published at any time.
For the print edition, we seek papers that explore the impact of public policies on LGBTQ communities around the world, the role of LGBTQ individuals, communities, and allies in shaping public policy, or provide new insight into policy dilemmas and solutions from an LGBTQ perspective. We also welcome articles and commentaries that consider traditional areas of policy debate — economic, political and social — and analyze the implications for the advancement of LGBTQ interests.
