“God, children know something they can't tell; they like Red Riding Hood and the wolf in bed!” Djuna Barnes, “Nightwood”


Wicked Gay Ways is an online arts journal seeking to create connections across the many dimensions of queer sexual desire as embodied in art and the creative process. Wicked Gay Ways publishes work from both new, emerging and established artists.

We offer thoughtful and provocative dialogue through a wide-range of work presented. We begin our work from the acknowledgment that there already exists an impressive and diverse body of erotic and sexually relevant work in art, performance, dance, music, film and literature in both the Western and Eastern cannon. We desire through Wicked Gay Ways to expand on the understanding of the work that has come before us, while presenting the creation and evolution of newer work and how this work addresses and is in turn shaped by the evolving influence and role that sexuality and desire continues to play in our individual and artistic lives. Welcome to the labyrinth.
