The Gay & Lesbian Review / Worldwide (The G&LR) is a bimonthly magazine of history, culture, and politics that publishes essays in a wide range of disciplines as well as reviews of books, movies, and plays for an educated readership of LGBT people, and their allies. The G&LR’s mission is to promote equal rights and equality for all sexual and gender minorities, advance the intellectual life of LGBTQ+ people, and educate a broader public on LGBTQ+ topics.  With the generous support of the Leonard-Litz Foundation, it has created a writers and artists grant program to cultivate a diverse pool of writers for The G&LR to bring new perspectives, ideas, and voices to the magazine and to encourage and support emerging and unpublished  LGBTQ+ writers, thinkers, scholars, and artists. We are currently accepting proposals from graduate students across disciplines and fields that make a contribution to LGBTQ+ scholarship or the arts. The grant(s) will be awarded to scholars, writers, and artists to provide funding to write one or more articles for The G&LR and to begin, complete, or advance LGBTQ+ related writing and other creative projects, such as a research paper or thesis, book, podcast, video, screenplay, multimedia creation, and/or an art installation. Proposals that incorporate discussion of race, gender, and class, disability, or other similar topics are of particular interest.


  • Students who are enrolled in an accredited graduate school program whose proposed project makes a contribution to LGBTQ+ scholarship or the arts are eligible to apply.
  • Multi-author applications and international applicants are welcome.
