Why Contemporary Queer?
We stand on the shoulders of giants, but we never look past their heads. We never envision how it would be to exist in–dare I say it?–Utopia. A perfect future. A perfect now.
Contemporary Queer is about envisioning and working toward those visions we hold–not global (singular) but globals (plural). It asks us to take a moment to center our identities and embody them and not justify them.
As a platform, we seek to provide our readers with cultivated stories that are important to them but that don’t ask them to segregate parts of themselves to consume and enjoy them. From lifestyle to personal to arts to community, we try to reach our readers a step ahead of where they are.

Hi, I’m Sage. I’m a twenty-something Millennial who lives with his partner and two cats in Recife, Brazil.
I’ve always been impatient about the future and so I’ve always been frustrated with the present. Contemporary Queer was born from taking a step back and recognizing myself in the present, recognizing myself as the result of the successes and failures of the past, and envisioning a future where today’s structures of dominance have eroded into liberation for all. And giving all those people and all those futures a platform from which to be heard.
