Pride and Joy Publishing was established BY and FOR the LGBTQ+ community.
We realize the barriers to publishing because we’ve faced them ourselves and we understand being queer adds an extra layer to the obstacle course. We want to offer space for intersectionality, diversity and inclusion in the literary world and amplify our community’s voices. This is our mission. Working through us guarantees that your work will not be held to a binary set of standards and you will be side by side with members of a publishing team who understand and celebrate your life experiences.
