BG Issue – no. 08



The Big Gay Spring Issue!

In celebration of our LGBTQIA2S+ community, we have dedicated this issue to gay/trans/queer – lived experiences, dreams & aspirations. Being the “Big Gay” wasn’t required for submissions, but it was highly encouraged. We also encourage our hetero/cis-normative readers to consider what it means to be an ally in a time and place where legislation is being enacted to strip the freedoms of our queer/trans friends and family. We must remain vigilant. We must resist. We spit in the face of tyranny. We shit on the doorsteps of our oppressors and light it ablaze. Perhaps most importantly, we love each other until the end of days.

The Northern Mirror is brought to you by:

The Red River Creatives Collective (RRCC) is a fluid, umbrella entity for the Northern MN and ND arts scene, operating out of the Fargo/Moorhead area. This is intended to be a community-driven organizing space focused on prioritizing and uplifting disenfranchised voices, and creating solidarity among creatives.

Through both print and online publication of The Northern Mirror we strive to create a platform for experimental and under-represented artists in all disciplines, as well as a way to disseminate information regarding community resources, and cultural and educational opportunities.

RRCC strives to be an unconventional, multi-disciplinary arts organization that does not conform to the status quo. Our work is the building up and promoting of creators without the oppressive and classist nature of institutions and mainstream arts sector. We aim for flexibility and the ability to adapt to our changing community needs.
