Share, inform, and mobilize: At the heart of our mission

Most articles are currently only available in French.
For the production of content, Les 3 sex* relies on external collaborations. Before publication, articles are evaluated and revised by our reading committee. Opinions expressed in the articles, however, are not an expression of the organization’s position, and only represent the points of view of the authors. Our editorial perspective aims to render texts in gender-neutral language. Since this is not always possible, we pay particular attention to feminization. It is however possible that certain texts do not represent all gender identities of the magazine’s readership. To submit an article, click here.
