At Jarry, we're broadly interested in how food functions in gay life, and no topic is too obvious or obscure to be considered. We’re agnostic to settings, and seek to highlight subjects who have food associations that may or may not seem immediately clear—a chef, a mixologist, a stay-at-home dad, a dancer, a busboy. We’re equally eager to explore areas related to modern domesticity that are a natural extension of food: home design, DIY projects, gardening, sex and relationships, and the like.
We publish profiles and interviews; culture, style, trend, and history pieces; photo essays and illustration series; recipes and reviews; and are open to considering anything else that fits in the scope of our content.
All creative work is compensated. No topic is too serious or silly to explore. And what’s provocative mustn’t be pandering. Lastly, we have no preconceived notions about this project—we’re curious to see what patterns, if any, emerge when our contributors can assume their work is for a gay audience.
