Formatted abstract
Since the 1970s, there has been a strong and active gay and lesbian press in the
southern parts of Australia. This press emerged later in Queensland than in the
southern states but today it reaches many queer Queenslanders and performs a
vital and multifaceted role.' While this press provides essential representation and
visibility for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (GLBTIQ)
population of Queensland, it also embodies a number of tensions inherent in this
community. This article charts the development and history of the print media nm
by and for the queer community of Queensland, particularly focusing on the two
major GLBTIQ periodicals currently available in Queensland. These are Queensland
, published monthly, and QNews, published fortnightly. The article explores
the conflicts that exist in that queer print media, arguing that Queensland's queer
press has struggled to adequately represent what has become an increasingly
multifarious and diverse GLBTIQ 'community'. [Article extract]
