'Jarry,' New Queer Publication, To Explore Intersection Of Food And Gay Culture

A new publication is in the works that will bring together two of our favorite things: food and gay culture.

Called Jarry, the biannual print magazine is currently engaged in an open call for submissions that focus on how food functions within the context of gay life. With this being the launch of a new creative work, those involved are claiming that no topic is too obscure or obvious for consideration and all those who have creative work accepted by Jarry will be financially compensated.

"In large part, gay men have been spinning the wheels of the food and food media industry for decades -- we look to Richard Onley, James Beard, and Craig Claibourne as something of a holy trio -- but never has there been a publication that speaks directly to them," Alex Kristofcak, publishing director of Jarry, said in a statement. "We're eager to not only draw from this rich history, but to highlight some of the talented writers, chefs, artists, artisans and entrepreneurs, tastemakers, and more who are working today. We expect a magazine that inspires as much as it enlightens, and are particularly excited to see the diverse, talented community of artists and readers that emerges."
