Welcome to QT! Queer Toronto Literary Magazine is a non-profit dedicated to elevating and celebrating queer voices in Canada.

You’re Invited - Celestial Bodies!

Get ready for an out-of-this-world celebration of queer living and loving, and join QT for our Celestial Bodies party on August 18th at 7:30pm at East Room at 50 Carroll Street.

Come for a night of burlesque and performance art, get your tarot cards read, see who the stars want to match you with, and meet and mingle with other queers. Join us for our vendor showcase starting at 7:30pm, performances starting at 9pm, and dance deep into the night with drag shows and DJs. This is a 19+ event.

Issue no. 11 Forbidden Fruit is now out!

In this issue, we sought to recapture the energy of the Renaissance: to flaunt the forbidden. The pieces featured interrogate the forbidden, particularly in its intersection with queerness. Artists were asked to show us the darkest corners of their mind palace. To give us the shadowy recesses they don’t let others see.

Gay Merch!

Fundraising for a small non-profit is hard, but thankfully gay Jesus invented gay merch. Most of our stuff is available in the 3 traditional genders of black, white, and baby pink. So go ahead and support local grassroots organizing and look cute doing it!
