MOST OF HISTORY HAS BEEN WRITTEN BY WHITE MEN. WHAT THEY WROTE AND THE TRUTHS THEY CREATED ARE WHAT WE SEE REFLECTED IN MAINSTREAM GLOBAL POLITICS, MEDIA AND DISCOURSES TODAY.THE HISTORY OF ALMOST ALL OTHER PEOPLE (WE KNOW WHO WE ARE!) HAS BEEN WIDELY NEGLECTED IN THE PAST AND IS STILL UNDERREPRESENTED IN THE PRESENT.
WE CAN CHANGE THAT!
OUR_STORY wants to challenge a heteronormative history that has been written by white men and colonizers. OUR_STORY wants to highlight voices that are and have often been silenced. You’re especially encouraged to submit if you have not published anything before. Reprints are ok, so are anonymous submissions.

Accepted submissions will be published online on TQU and accessible to all.If you have a question, please ask!
