Iridium Magazine is closing its doors. A combination of circumstances lead to this decision: I (Jasmine Hong) lost my job (semi-voluntarily), which resulted in loss of health insurance/care, financial security, and housing. My situation has improved recently, but the resultant instability has made it all but impossible to keep Iridium going. I agonized over this decision for quite some time, and did consider simply putting Iridium on hiatus, but I thought it would be unfair to our authors, subscribers, and the community in general when I simply don’t know when or if I will ever recuperate enough to run Iridium effectively.
My team and I still firmly believe in our mission. We hope you do, too.
I thank you all for the support you have given us and encourage you to continue to support QUILTBAG+ publications if you can find them. Anathema Magazine is a good place to start. They are currently running a subscription drive. Please consider giving them the support you gave us.
Moving forward, I will be contacting authors whose work we still have in our inbox, contacting published authors with more information, and refunding paid subscribers.No Comments
