“The best damn film magazine in the whole wide world” —GAYLETTER
Little Joe is a unique forum for the discussion of cinema, sexuality and gender, and queer history. Since launching our first issue in 2010, the publication has become an important place for stimulating dialogues on film, leading the way in the queer analysis of moving images past and present. Each limited-edition issue features essays, in-depth conversations, short stories, comics, commissioned artworks, and archival discoveries.
Little Joe was featured in MoMA’s Millenium Magazines, a survey of experimental art and design magazines published since 2000.
“Print zine Little Joe is the queer cinema bible—and would no doubt revel in such a sacrilegious accolade. A sense of mischief runs through its pages, whether in the form of erotic stills from long-lost gay movies, the platforming of marginalized filmmakers, or the rebellious act of challenging cinema’s heteronormative status quo.” —Amelia Abraham, Vice
“The magazine is a kind of heir to both Film Culture and After Dark, and its implicit project is a vital one: mapping the subterranean canon of queer cinema, past and present, drawing together its many and varied histories, frequently from the margins (vanguards?) of taste and style.” —Light Industry
“Little Joe has already earned itself a cult following… The magazine documents both the emergent history of gay film, how it evolved, what it meant and where it stands today.” —DazedDigital.com
“For a look into cinematic history with a decidedly queer eye, you could do worse than picking up the beautifully designed Little Joe. The magazine gives overlooked movies an idiosyncratic new outing.” —Attitude
