Just came across this call for submissions, and while I normally just forward these sort of things to friends and writers I have worked with who might find it of interest, I thought I'd post it as part of the whole ongoing RaceFail discussion. While not a genre market, per se, that doesn't mean they might not be interested in genre material.

I don't even know if they are interested in fiction, but since they pay three times what most genre mags pay, it's worth a query; they might also be interested in a personal essay about one's experiences as a genre reader/writer. Lots of ways to possibly slant or pitch something, it all depends on how you approach things.

Anyway, FWIW, for Writers of Color who may be looking for additional/interesting markets:

Kraze magazine (USA) is looking for freelance contributors. The new quarterly publication targets African American/Multicultural women and contains various types of articles. Payment: US18 cents per word. For guidelines contact Candra Jolly at editorial@krazemag.com.

The finalists for the Publishing Triangle Awards, which include the Audre Lorde Award for lesbian poetry, the Thom Gunn Award for gay male poetry, the Randy Shilts and Judy Grahn awards for non-ficiton, and the Ferro-Gumley Awards for LGBT fiction, The Edmund White Award for debut fiction, have been announced.

It's especially nice to see Ellen Wittlinger's lovely YA novel LOVE & LIES: MARISOL'S STORY getting attention as an adult book (it's also a finalist for the Lambda Literary Awards in the YA category), and also Alison Bechdel's fantastic ESSENTIAL DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR (not a finalist for the Lammies).
