Dudes Rock!

Isn’t it hard to find a place where being one of the dudes doesn’t mean compromising a part of yourself? A place where your personal masculine identity rests easy outside the boxes of the gender binary? Even just somewhere you can hang with the boys and not worry about them hating women? We want Dudes Rock! to be that place for you. Imagine a future where something as simple as wearing that leather jacket you stare at longingly doesn’t fill you with anxiety, and something as complex as lesbian masculinity is easy to share with the world. From the ambitious charm of Game of Thrones’ Renly Baratheon to the elegant romance of Lan Wangii (The Untamed, 2019), and everything else beyond: Dudes Rock! is about celebrating all that queer masculinity can be beyond the confines of a single world, and we want you to rock with us.

This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
