Issue 02: Light & Dark
As the theme Light & Dark suggests, Issue 02 bravely confronts the messiness of self-discovery and celebrates the freedom that comes from reclaiming your identity on your own terms.
Our most provocative issue to date features 12 stories in the form of personal essays, poetry, photography, and illustration from 20 #badasians all over the US and covers topics from coming out to colorism; political resistance to reclaiming masculinity; cyberbullying to sexual fantasies; and more.
