About

The Brown Orient was founded in response to the dire underrepresentation endured by creatives hailing from the mainlands and diaspora of South, Southeast, Southwest, and Central Asia. In the midst of mainstream media's conscious erasure of our voices, we utilize independent publishing to weave our resistance into something tangible. We refer to these less acknowledged Asian regions as a greater Brown Asia, an often challenged terminology that is in fact a concrete attempt to reclaim the word that holds more depth than mere association with the stigma that we also fight against: the word that speaks volumes about our color, culture, and collective strength. In commitment to this promise of uplifting marginalized talents, we choose to exclusively feature writers and artists who identify as a woman or as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, who remain sidelined even within their immediate communities. The Brown Orientis a creative space dedicated to the silenced, the inspired, the enraged. Through art and literature, we aim to spark conversations that lie on the intersection of race and gender, championing equality for brown-skinned Asian women and LGBTQIA+ folks by ensuring a platform that is founded solely to host their bold artistic expression.

Important: Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to women and LGBTQIA+ people from local/diasporic S/SE/SW Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle East.
