Dear Readers,

Here we are again! Thank you for reading our third issue of OUT/CAST! It’s a surreal feeling, publishing our third issue in the short time since we launched OUT/CAST. We say this a lot, but only because it’s true: to everyone supporting us, thank you so much.

Issue 3 features work from twelve different individuals. The work presented here offers different visions of what queer communication can entail for persons both within and outside of the Midwest. It feels great, to finally share this collection of work from so many talented people.

So we hope Issue 3 finds you well. It has been an intense summer and is already an intense autumn. We hope that OUT/CAST can be a point of connection and community for all those reading and contributing. Please feel free to say hello on social media.

We hope you enjoy the issue,

Christine M. Hopkins
