A digital magazine for LGBTQIA+ Youth of Color.

Yeah, I know. It's as awesome as it sounds.


My name is Medina. My pronouns are they/them/their. I am a first year MFA candidate at The New School in New York City. I am studying Creative Writing (Writing for Children and Young Adults).

As a nonbinary trans Latinx adoptee, I struggled to find representation. From the books I devoured, to the magazines I so desperately wanted to see myself in, it was as if I didn't exist in mainstream media. It's so important that we see ourselves reflected back at us. It is also so important that the reflection is authentic.

I want to create a digital publication for LGBTQIA+ youth of color!! But I can't do it without your support!

Personal Essays Poetry

Our mission

To create a youth-led safe space that honors and celebrates the narratives of underrepresented voices of PoC.

I need your help because...

I believe that all creatives should be paid for their work. I want to be able to pay every contributor!

I want to register as a non-profit and that costs money, too.

Here's a breakdown of how your donations will help!

digital space

your donations will help pay our writers and editorial staff

event spaces

we want to be able to host events around the city. connecting with community offline is essential! (author panels, socials, etc)


we want to be able to provide a series of workshops for emerging young QTIBIPoC artists. We want these workshops to be free! in order to make this happen we need to pay for rental space, pay instructors for their time and provide food and drinks.


website hosting, marketing & promotion, newsletter service, etc

Help make this a reality!

Thank you for your support.
