Our mission:

We are creating a world without capitalism, white supremacy, cisheteropatriarchy, ableism, racism, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, trans/queermisia (trans/queerphobia), and other oppressions—together.

Some of our foci:

  • racial justice/anti-racism
  • anticapitalism
  • mental illness
  • disability/healing justice
  • trans/queer justice
  • decolonisation
  • anti-imperialism
  • anti-police/anti-ICE and demilitarisation
  • transformative justice
  • community accountability
  • Black feminism
  • and other feminisms of colour

These are just a few of our foci.

Please support our mission, share our articles, and tell your friends about us so we can continue this work!

Thank you to our amazing contributors✨:

Our current logo was designed by amelie, a blind queer agender Vietnamese-USian artist and designer.

Note: was originally founded as a magazine centred around BIPOC, but not specifically trans and queer BIPOC in its first year. The two earliest posts may have been written by, or written about, cis and/or het BIPOC.
