About Gertrude: Gertrude Press is a non-profit organization showcasing and developing the creative talents of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer-identified, and allied individuals. Gertrude, the annual international literary publication of Portland-based Gertrude Press, has been giving a voice to LGBTQ writers since 1999. Fiction and poetry chapbooks are published annually through a judged competition and distributed to subscribers, libraries, universities and bookstores. An annual subscription to Gertrude includes two issues of the journal and a fiction or poetry chapbook.
"Gertrude Press doesn't have to worry about that very much. The Portland-based gay, lesbian, bi and trans literary and poetry journal, while not on a daily deadline for hard-hitting news and comprehensive election coverage, is a big piece to the niche press puzzle. What's more, it's growing every day."
