I've been writing a series of shorts at recently that focus on the notion of ghosts in/from LGBT history, I'd say they currently (I've got 4 so far) space across eerie/speculative and graphic horror. I was wondering if the board had advice on whether to try sending to horror genre markets first on the assumption that they might have a better rates and readership, or to prioritise LGBT markets that might have more vested interest in the queer content (even if they don't like the gore?)

Or just try a mix and match approach and see which one sticks first?

(I say this as someone that's never actually submitted anything for professional publication before but have put it on my resolutions list for the year to be brave and Send Something Out)
