We are seeking to create a publication that provides information and inspiration toward the end goal of interconnected liberation. Where identity is complicated and worth exploring for ourselves. Where we get to draw our own conclusions about ourselves and allow space others to do the same. We are working alongside creators who are both able to critique and willing to accept it. As we fully acknowledge that there is no liberation for any of us if we continue to barge ahead without expecting that there are limitations of any one of our understandings, minding whose turn it is to speak and gracefully changing our behavior as needed. Because we believe in building the kind of communities that care about impact. And things get much more fun and interesting when we all arrive ready to work.
No exceptions. No excuses, or no deal.
