Issue 5 is on Self-care & Wellness.
The theme of self-care and wellness was inevitable this year since the cultural dialogue has been about taking care of ourselves. But I would be remiss if I didn’t think that some of this dialogue was a bit elitist and not what urban culture would define as “self-care.” And so this zine won’t tell you where to get a good mani or pedicure or which cryotherapy boutique to visit during your lunch hour. Issue 5 content is more for the soul. Once you pick it up, you’re not gonna want to put it down.
This year we have 9 collaborators who are all keeping it real by simply telling their stories. Stories about how to deal with fuckboys who say they like your vibe but really just want you to fuck you. And of course, where would we be if we didn’t highlight women of color owned and lead online communities?! You’ll read about three of these groups and how they are truly making space for people to just embrace who they are in a safe environment.
