Issue 03: Taboo

Pre-order through Kickstarter (ends Nov. 12th)


Through our signature mix of personal essays, poems, art, illustration, and photography, Issue 03 openly dives into topics like self-pleasure, drugs, intergenerational trauma, tattoos, the adoptee experience, and grief—and ultimately celebrates the freedom that comes from challenging long-held beliefs around who we are and how we came to be.
