Little Joe is a unique forum for the discussion of film around subjects of sexuality and gender within a queer historical context. Since launching our first issue in 2010, the magazine has quickly become an important place for stimulating dialogues on film, leading the way in queer analysis of cinema and providing a platform to celebrate films that inspire alternative discourse. We have been complimenting the focus of the publication with an ongoing film programme, presenting screenings and events both in the UK and internationally. We regularly collaborate with film clubs, festivals and institutions including Tate Modern, Kunstverein, NY Art Book Fair, LA Art Book Fair, LUX, The Cinema Museum, Dirty Looks, Light Industry, Midnight Movies, Scala Forever, Edinburgh International Film Festival, The BFI London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and Queer Lisboa.
Little Joe was featured in MoMA's Millenium Magazines, a survey of experimental art and design magazines published since 2000.
"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 gay and lesbian cinema, past and present, drawing together its many and varied histories, frequently from the margins (vanguards?) of taste and style."
"This new and beautifully designed magazine shines of an acute aura of queer VHS nostalgia, but more importantly is about rediscovering and knowing more about those unlikely heroes who were so mesmerizing the first time the tape run in the video player."
"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."
"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."
"It’s a little bit quirky, a little bit racey, and more than a little bit engrossing. The book-sized journal digests queer cinema with flair and insight, with an emphasis on the nostalgic rather than the contemporary. Only three issues deep, these guys are already producing vanguard content and pulling excellent interviews out of cult icons like George Kuchar and David DeCoteau. It’s a product of obvious enthusiasm for the subject."
